Abstract: abstract:This study reports on the design and development of a web-based reading strategy program. With the rise of the Internet, online reading serves as a major source of input for L2 readers. With this increased use of computers and multimedia comes an urgent need to train L2 readers in how to more effectively digest online materials. A web-based reading strategies program based on L2 reading pedagogy, L2 reading strategy research, and current reading programs in Taiwan was therefore constructed. This system includes both teacher and student interfaces. Students had access to fifteen reading aids: Global strategy design provided students with previews, keywords, and outlines of the reading texts as well as chances to make predictions. Problem-solving strategy mechanisms included online summary services, reading-rate training, text-to-speech software, and semantic mapping tools. Support strategy functions were provided by online dictionaries, online grammar resources, an online translation mechanism, highlighting tools, and individualized electronic notebooks. Socio-affective strategies were displayed by using online chatrooms, discussion boards, email services, and music boxes. Teachers could check students’ learning records showing what types of reading strategy support functions were accessed, what kinds of hyperlinks were consulted, and the results of their comprehension quizzes. This program was integrated into a college-level online English class. The results showed that students had positive attitudes towards this program in terms of the design of its strategy tools, interface design, and learning effects. They also welcomed the possibility of including more online reading in the existing college English education curriculum.
