Abstract

Recent advances in technology have provided a wide variety of possibilities for incorporating animation in computer-based learning environments. A well-known benefit of using animation in a learning context is its ability to visually depict dynamic contents which are usually imperceptible because animated pictures can show information about two important visual attributes: motion and trajectory. The purpose of this paper is to explain how computer animation could be used in EFL learning environments to support learning achievement. It considers how effective the animation is and which learning processes are being supported. Present state of research on animations and projects that the author has been involved in are used to illustrate its potential. This paper also provides design implications and outlines its suitability for different learning activities. In current English learning practice, it is often the case that decisions about whether an animation should be used and how it should be used in a computer-based learning resource are based primarily on the nature ofthe to-be-learned subject matter.
