Selected Aspects of Academic Foreign Language Teaching With the Use of University E-Platform

Summary

With a preliminary test and trial period long gone university distance learning platforms have been an inseparable part of the academic education environment for many years now. Universities use their potential differently, depending on the specificity of a school, merit-related issues or pragmatic reasons. Being an important element of academic education foreign language teaching is given extra support from numerous applications of the electronic tool. Exemplification of the use of Moodle platform in the scope of the functioning of an inter-faculty academic unit providing foreign language teaching shows not only the validity of using the e-platform itself, but also the validity of looking for advantageous solutions – within a potent tool at hand – for specific merit-related teaching and organisational actions. This article also indicates the efficacy as well as the multiaceted character of the tool, especially in the context of its benefits for students – participants of the teaching process, for whom the development of language competences, and further, key competences, is the foundation of preparing graduates for new challenges.
