Abstract

This paper discusses the preparations that were made in the running of the course Malaysian Literature in English that was taught face-to-face as well as in the virtual mode. Learning Care, the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) learning management system was used as the web-based delivery tool. The system allows for various activities: notes to be uploaded and downloaded; providing links to other sites; conducting a survey; taking tests; tracking students' learning time; blogging. It is found that various tools such as Microsoft Office FrontPage, SWiSH, and Adobe Fireworks can be used to prepare literature students to embrace new technology in their learning, and they found the blend of virtual teaching and learning, and face-to-face teaching an innovation and makes literature more accessible.
