In the 21st century computer technologies develop at a tremendous pace. Teachers teaching Chinese as a second language through smart searching engines and databases on Internet may collect, edit and upload contents to automatically generate teaching materials, thus combining methodology and curriculum with computer technologies to manage teaching on line. This study focuses on how an e-learning platform Moodle is being applied in our Intermediate Chinese Speaking and Listening Course, particularly on how it manages and supervises pace of study of students, and how it coordinates with teachers’ classroom teaching, in order to examine its effectiveness. This paper also addresses the feedback from students on their perspectives of comprehensive computer technologies being employed in teaching Chinese as a second language, and the reflections of teachers towards teaching with Moodle.
