Abstract

Writing is a complex process that requires pre-writing activities such as brainstorming, word mapping, outlining, drafting , editing and revising. The process is facilitated by group collaboration in the different writing stages. Wikis, as one of the Web 2.0 social networking tools, are web sites, the content of which can be edited by visitors to the site, allowing users to easily create and edit pages collaboratively. This study aims at investigating the effect of using wikis and face –to- face collaborative writing on the writing performance and self- regulated learning skills among EFL college students. The study comprises 66 female participants enrolled in Writing 4, an advanced writing course, at Level 4 in the College of Education at Dhahran Al-Janoub, King Khaled University, Saudi Arabia. The experimental group (n=34) used wikis for collaborative essay writing while the control group (n=32) used face-to-face collaboration. Results of the study revealed that students using wikis as collaborative writing tools outperformed those using face-to-face collaborative writing in essay writing performance. Besides, they outperformed them in self-regulated learning skills. The study gives implications on the potentials that wikis hold for the teaching of EFL and the area of writing skill.

Best Secure Android phones used in e-learning

 

 

 

Android:

  Is a Linux-based operating system designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, developed by Google in conjunction with the Open Handset Alliance. Initially developed by Android Inc, whom Google financially backed and later purchased, Android was unveiled in 2007 along with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance, a consortium of 86 hardware, software, and telecommunication companies devoted to advancing open standards for mobile devices.Additionally, Android has a large community of developers writing applications ("apps") that extend the functionality of devices. Developers write primarily in a customized version of Java,] and apps can be downloaded from online stores such as Google Play (formerly Android Market).

Security:

Android applications run in a sandbox, an isolated area of the operating system that does not have access to the rest of the system's resources, unless access permissions are granted by the user when the application is installed. Before installing an application, the Play Store displays all required permissions. A game may need to enable vibration, for example, but should not need to read messages or access the phonebook. After reviewing these permissions, the user can decide whether to install the application. The sandboxing and permissions system weakens the impact of vulnerabilities and bugs in applications. The complexity of inter-application communication implies Android may have opportunities to run unauthorized code.
