Abstract: The paper will report on the results of using Web 2.0 in a traditional college ESL reading and writing class. Instructors will survey students to report on the degree the computer curriculum helped to improve their reading and writing skills and which computer writing lessons students found most beneficial. A survey will also be given to gauge how using the computer for writing assignments helped to improve student apprehension. This study may have implications for college instructors in meeting the needs of their students when incorporating computers into traditional curriculums.
