Abstract

This study aims to create a blended learning environment, based on the concept of competency-based training, in a Chinese as a Foreign Language (CFL) classroom at an American university. Drupal platform and web 2.0 tools were used as supplements to traditional face-to-face classroom instruction. Students completed various selective tasks and assignments and received instructor’s feedback through several online modules. Students and the instructor were polled at the end of the semester so that their opinions and experiences could be gathered and analyzed. The findings revealed that the instructor and students alike responded positively to blended learning, suggesting that web 2.0 is a promising tool in promoting effective learning of Chinese.
