Here are five ways we think you can use MEC Web Links with your class.

  1. An obvious use for Web Links is to send your learners links to useful English learning websites. There are plenty of them out there such as onestopenglish and the BBC. Also don’t forget online newspapers like the Guardian are perfect for more advanced reading activities or as a homework task.

  2. A very popular way to use Web Links is by sending your learners direct links to video clips. You might want them to watch the clip for homework or during the lesson. Youtube, the Guardian multimedia section and TEFLclips have a great range of videos to choose from.

  3. If you have created a worksheet and want an easy way for your learners to access it why not create a online document (a Google document for example) and post it to them as a link. For more on how to create Google documents click here.

  4. Send your learners information about your school, university or organisation via Web Links so they can keep up-to-date with what’s going on. This can include links to your school’s Moodle or Blackboard site, if you have one.

  5. Create your own Web Projects. There are ready made Web Projects on MEC but you might want to create your own. For inspiration go to the Word and Phrase Search and type in “Web Project”. You could send instructions via the Comments box and then post your learners a package of Web Links to read and search for information.

If you have forgotten how to create or publish a Web Link follow the instructions below.
