Task-based Learning

Task-based language learning is an approach where the planning of learning materials and teaching sessions are based around doing a task. In education, a task refers to an activity where communication is necessary: for example; deciding something, solving a problem, designing or organising something, or telling someone to do something.

It is student-centred; Assign tasks in context (task-based approach), e.g. designing online/face to face tasks (written/oral tasks); simulation and development of real life tasks; completion of tasks and the language study is determined by what happens as the students complete them; it aims at the description, reflection and discussion of meaningful tasks; practice of areas which need more work.

CourseLab Editor

CourseLab has great acceptance. Its similarity to Power Point was decisive in reducing learning time. It is a SCORM compliant authoring tool that provides a graphical environment for creating interactive e-learning content that can be published on the Internet, on an LMS, on CD-ROMs, and on other devices. The features offered by CourseLab are very intuitive, allowing the user to understand what they can do without having to do it to perceive the result. It supportsĀ the programming of actions between objects by clicking with the right mouse button on the object and choosing Actions, thus extending the interactivity and usefulness of the learning object. It is an effective authoring tool but also efficient because it can quickly change the common elements in the corresponding template.

CourseLab can be used to create a wide range of applications:

  • Assessments, quizzes
  • Employee and customer surveys
  • New employee orientations
  • Sales force trainings
  • Guides for policies and procedures
  • Products and services training courses
  • Certification exams
  • Product libraries
  • Interactive product demonstrations
  • Software simulations
  • etc.
