Title: Integration of the Internet in a Sudanese EFL Classroom
Author: Ezza, Elsadig Yahya; Elbooni, Gamar A.; Mohammed, Mohammadain Y.
Abstract: This study explores the integration of the web resources into the EFL classroom activities at the University of Khartoum, Sudan. In this connection, the study aims at achieving three objectives. Firstly, it sets out to give insight into the nature of the Internet as a rich educational resource that can provide EFL classrooms with authentic situations of language use. Secondly, it intends to popularize webogogy in the traditional educational system not only in the EFL classroom but also in all disciplinary tracks. Thirdly, and most importantly, it calls on Sudanese tertiary institutions to take on either or both forms of web-based learning, i.e. e-learning and blended learning, since they have been proved to accommodate all types of learners unlike traditional education which is conceived to put a good deal of learners at a disadvantage. The study made three predictions about the use of the Internet in the EFL classroom: 1. Most EFL teachers use web-based materials to enrich courses content; 2. Most EFL teachers integrate their students’ Internet skills into the classroom activities; and 3. Regardless of gender, most teachers integrate web-based materials into the EFL course content. A questionnaire was designed and distributed to 25 respondents who were randomly drawn from the total of 41 EFL faculty members who are currently in the service of the University of Khartoum. The data obtained was analyzed using SPSS. The findings confirmed the three hypotheses.
