Abstract

As an e-learning system, New Perspective English Learning System is widely used in universities and colleges in China. However, little research has been carried on directed towards its effectiveness and correctness. This paper makes a case study on Jiangxi Normal University and adopts survey research as the predominant methodology and interview as secondary method. Via data collection and analysis, it examines respectively system effectiveness from respondents’ satisfaction comments on five dimensions including students situation, learning resources, support from teachers, e-learning Support Platform and learning support service. Then it suggests an urgent need to solve the existing problems and improve the function of the whole NPELS Learning Hall platform in many ways. Finally some discussion and corresponding suggestions are proposed.
