Abstract: Students have positive perspective toward language learning apps, for instance, flashcard, online dictionary, and games. They benefit from the opportunity to be able to learn outside classroom (Steel, 2012). Studies also show that students in the mobile learning group demonstrated higher learning achievement compared to the control group (Chang & Hsu, 2011; Rahimi & Miri, 2014; Soleimani, Ismial, & Mustaffa, 2014). The three elements in the Community of Inquiry Model (Garrison, Anderson, & Archer, 2000) are: social, cognitive, and teaching presence. In an online learning environment, social presence is the most challenging one. By integrating mobile learning in the online class, instructors and students will have more opportunity to interact with each other. This presentation will discuss the pedagogical use of mobile learning apps in online language course and how to use rubric to evaluate and find the apps for your class.
