Camille, Multimedia in het T2-Curriculum
Computer assistance in the language learning process appears to become increasingly important. In spite of the costs institutions appear to be eager to take on board the technology. The object of this paper is to examine what motivates Dutch institutes of higher education to implement advanced computer-aided language learning environments in their foreign language courses. In this respect the social conditions for implementation and aspects of language learning theory are discussed. Next, the multimedia courseware resulting from the EU/Lingua-sponsored CAMILLE project is described. Finally conditions for a successful implementation of this courseware are analyzed with particular emphasis on the changing role of both teacher and student.
