One of the more recent funded EAC projects is Technology-enabled English across Curriculum, which aims at enhancing students’ English communicative competence beyond the standalone English language subjects to help students with the English they need to complete assessments in their content subjects. The project provides students with multi-modal English language learning resources appropriate to their discipline on platforms such as the LMS or via the Capstone Ninja mobile app.
Technology-enabled English across Curriculum brings together English language teachers and discipline academics (i.e. subject leaders and capstone project supervisors) on the design of English learning resources such as language tips and citation format, as well as technical experts in mobile application design and engineers of mobile app development.
Students use Capstone Ninja to learn, to schedule their workload, and to communicate with their supervisors. In The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Capstone Ninja has been widely used by students and their project supervisors in FAST, FB, FCE, FENG and FHSS.
