Abstract

This paper will describe a new endeavour in the area of distance education: the design and teaching of an e-mail supported academic second language reading comprehension course. The intermediate level course was intended for mature adult learners and implemented at the Open University. The course spans 15 weeks and comprises three kinds of student participation: face to face meetings, e-mail sessions and written assignments. The teaching materials are pre-prepared and include a collection of reading passages; workbooks dealing with nine texts that include approximately 20 questions and relevant teaching points. The course consists of three 3- hour f2f meetings and nine asynchronous e-mail sessions. Students have a week to complete each e-mail assignment and they receive the tutor's feedback within 3-4 days. Student feedback on the course is obtained through a questionnaire.
