The purpose of the website Second Language Learning Issues in Online Learning Environments is to investigate and introduce the research focusing on alternative or foreign language learning issues that students and educators may encounter as they conduct lessons through the Internet. These participants include grade 6 French-as-a-second-language students and teachers in Atlantic Canada, undergraduate Japanese-as-a-foreign-language students in Eastern United States, as well as undergraduate and English-as-a-second-language students and teachers from across the globe. 

The site Second Language Learning Issues in Online Learning Environments has also examined this theme of alternative language learning as highlighted in the ten studies presented (Literary Analysis), created visual representations of this analysis (Theme Resources), and uploaded a slidecast onto YouTube.

Leslie Davis graduated from the University of Victoria with a B.A.B.Ed., and is presently Head of the English Department at a British Columbia Offshore school in China. ED6610 is the fourth course in her pursuit of the M.Ed in IT degree from MUN. She has lived in Japan and China for most of the last 20 years, which has instilled in her an interest in alternative language learning issues and solutions. Since MUN does not provide a proxy service, Leslie had to purchase StrongVPN in order to complete this course online.
