Choosri Banditvilai
Abstract—This article examines a teacher’s experience when incorporating e-learning into a university level reading course. It presents a case study at Kasetsart University in Thailand. The aim of this study is to compare the achievements of two groups of students. The first group studied “English Reading” course in the classroom, while the second studied this subject supplemented by e-learning with parallel reading lessons. The effects of this method were investigated with the use of e-learning lessons, achievement test, a questionnaire and interviews. The findings were predominantly positive, in favor of e-learning, suggesting that teachers should use e-learning as a teaching aid to assist in developing students’ English reading skills.

Index Terms—E-learning, basic English reading, parallel reading lessons.
