Google Classroom, LMS, ESL, LSRW Skills



The study focuses on how the four language skills namely Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing (LSRW) can be enhanced using a Learning Management System (LMS) like Google Classroom. The study also intends to analyse the outcome and impact of using Google Classroom among English as Second Language (ESL) learners via graded assessments and activities. The study identifies the advantages and disadvantages of using Google Classroom in an ESL classroom. Based on the feedback received from the students in a language classroom, the study identifies that Google Classroom encourages an advantageous, interactive, and learner-centred environment and turns out to be an effective alternative for the traditional teacher-centred chalk and talk classrooms. The general observation from the sample population is that using Google Classroom a teacher can keep track of the gradual progress of students through assignments and questionnaires. The learners, on the other hand, find in Google Classroom an effective medium to profuse their creativity and a promising platform to undergo advanced language learning activities in future.
