At the outset of the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, lasting more than two years, education institutions moved their entire curriculum online virtually overnight, resulting in a myriad of problems for educators, many of whom lacked both the expertise and experience to develop, manage, and deliver instruction in an online learning environment, not to mention students, who were not accustomed to this learning mode. However, distance education has evolved across multiple stages of development as technology improved to its current form featuring Learning Management Systems (LMS) accessible anytime and anywhere from notebooks, tablets, and even smartphones With COVID-19 in the rear-view mirror, educators have gotten ahead of their learning curve and now have innovated their online teaching practices bringing online education into the mainstream, and second and foreign language teaching is no exception. The authors will demonstrate the ways in which an online learning environment can be a very effective mode of instruction for the teaching of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in American college-level English-as-a-second language (ESL) and Spanish courses, providing specific examples of multiple participation structures and opportunities for interactive practice through asynchronous and synchronous communications tools, Web 2.0 tools along with interactive PowerPoint presentations, assignment drop boxes, and online assessment tools. Finally, an analysis of the student learning outcomes (SLOs) across face-to-face and online sections of ESL and Spanish college courses at an American Community College reveals that students can perform just as well in online learning environment as they do in a face-to-face learning environment.
