experience of accessibility and convenience: ―I think that iPod, MP3 players and podcast

help students have more access more often to their lessons.‖ (P10)

Negative Case

This accessibility may not reach everyone. One student did reflect the negative

opposing view to convenience: ―I would have students watch film clips in Spanish on

YouTube for comprehension exercises, podcasts would also be convenient but not

everyone can afford iPods so that may be unfair.‖ (P9)

Familiarity

Participants reported using the school computer lab and were familiar with the

process. Most students normally worked from home but found the computer lab to be a

convenient option. Students felt the Web 2.0 technology tools were convenient to access

from inside the classroom and they demonstrated this with their ease of access.

Reference tools

The convenience theme was seen in terms of using Web 2.0 tools as reference tools

to reinforce the language learning process. One participant describes their experiences

using these tools: ―YouTube for lectures was helpful, in case a student needs to go back

to a lecture for referencing if they don‘t remember what the instructor said in class.‖

(P11) Participant 12 illustrates the ability to record using Web 2.0 tools and then review

later: ―The more interaction you have access to and the more you can hear the language

the more proficient you can become.‖ (P12)
