OLLReN will provide a number of different roles in supporting research into online language learning:

  • Develop and maintain a website that will bring together research activity and reports from around the world.
  • Maintain a database of researchers and research projects that relate to online language learning.
  • Provide guidance and summaries on current research to practitioners working with online language learning.
  • Support OLL research projects – e.g. with seed funding or access to our own data.
  • Run events that bring researchers from around the world together, to share their knowledge and experience.

Gordon Lewis, Vice President of Language Programs for Laureate Higher Education, said: ‘OLLReN will help make research into online language learning more widely known and more useful for educational managers and tutors that are responsible for online language programmes.’ 

Ben Knight, Director for Language Research at Cambridge University Press, added: ‘As increasing numbers of learners choose to learn language online, we want to play a role in making online programs more effective through making use of high quality research around the world.
