|Abstract: ||The new technologies of recent decades have brought about changes in how computers are used to assist language teaching. E-mail, computer conferencing, and now the World-Wide Web (WWW), have been increasingly used to enhance language teaching and to facilitate teacher development. With three examples drawn from e-mail and computer conferencing projects in Europe, America and Asia that involve English teachers and college students, this paper attempts to explore why and how computer-enhanced ESL/EFL projects have been extended to the WWW. Moving to the WWW has expanded the scope of the potential audience and made possible the inclusion of multimedia and hyperlinked materials in these projects. It is important to control the right of access and to monitor the quality of students' work, without losing sight of the language focus or sacrificing the human touch in language classes.
