Guixia SONG


According to Constructivism, teaching should emphasize the activity of the students. This paper analyzes the teaching impact on English internet or computer-based examination of Band 4 and Band 6 for local university students. In this paper, we summarize the present situation and difficulties and put forward some suggestions which include the principles for choosing the video and audio material and so on. It is concluded that listening should be put ahead of the speaking, build internet-based forum for audiovisual teaching, construct a good video module and implement the reform on teaching administration system for the university.
