Effectiveness Analysis of Edmodo-Based Blended English Learning Mode

Shuting Cao, Haiyuan Liu

Abstract


This paper attempts to overcome the defects of traditional English learning mode, including poor real-time communication ability, heavy reliance on individual self-discipline, and undesirable learning effect. Drawing on the theories of English learning motivation, the author analyzed the relationship between learning motiva-tion and learning behavior in light of the Edmodo-based blended English learning mode, and put forward the English learning persistence rate formula, thus reveal-ing the correlations between learning cost, objective external learning environ-ment, learning motivation, and learning persistent rate. In addition, the English courses were made more pertinent according to the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve. The course test data were fitted and weighted, outputting intuitive curves on learning effect. The research results show that the Edmodo-based blended Eng-lish learning mode has a significant learning effect, and a guiding significance for English learning and English teaching reform.
