Cool Chinese: Competence-Oriented Omniform Learning for Chinese as a Foreign Language
This project aims to design a Competence-Oriented Omniform Learning System for Chinese as a Foreign Language (COOL Chinese for CFL). This is a learner-specific system that produces high-quality Chinese e-learning materials and an accurate online assessment system evaluating Chinese proficiency for worldwide users. The COOL research project integrates six aspects—syllabus, teaching, learning, assessment, cooperation of academic and commerce, and international cooperation—to construct the learning system. Within this framework, the project will consider learners’ Chinese proficiency, individual quality, and cultural context in creating a digital learning environment. It is intended to be theory-praxis founded, adaptive, interactive, and diverse. This project has been previously conducted in a three year project of the same name. In the past two and a half years, the research team continuously focused on building academic credibility through vigorous research while endeavoring to design the needed materials and tools. Our achievements are abundant and groundbreaking, yet in need of enhancements and promotion to attain our objectives in providing omniform learning for worldwide learners of Chinese. Therefore, it is our intention to continue to refine and enrich our establishments as to fulfill our original purpose. So far, we have laid out the CSL Performance Index for establishing a CFL teaching syllabus and developed varieties of CFL learning models, teaching materials, and assessment tools. This Index that pertains to The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is intended for paving the way for future global promotions. To help CFL learners acquire Chinese characters online, The System for Learning Chinese Radicals and Database for Chinese Radical Structural Relations are our two other core developments that are still in progress from which we are building a teaching platform for beginners of Chinese and a Chinese Orthography Database Explorer for radical learning. We also have applied mnemonics and scenario and the effect of meta-knowledge in CFL to multimedia-assisted instruction to create a Hanzi Database and CHEERS: Chinese Hanzi E-learnER System. For advanced cultural understanding, ChineseCAP: Cultural Awareness Platform for Chinese as a Foreign Language provides a wiki-based environment for learners to integrate literal and cultural knowledge. In regards to assessment, the Online Test for Chinese Listening and Reading upon completion has already been used in several national exams as the Automatic Writing Scoring System and the Chinese Oral Training System are underway. The goal of COOL Chinese is to improve and digitalize Chinese teaching/learning materials and assessment systems to help CFL learners across the world learn according to their needs. Learning Chinese can be cool once we promote our research findings and quality materials and tools to the world.
