As information and communications technology is becoming ever more ubiquitous, online-learning has been accepted by more and more people. Online open courses, video open courses, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) enable people around the world to share quality education resources and are triggering a major global educational reform. Featuring “open” as its essence and “integration” as its strategy, the reform exerts a great impact on the development of education at various levels.

Against the backdrop of this ever changing learning environment, 2014 International Symposium on CALL will be held in Beijing with the primary aim of bringing together academics, researchers, teachers from both the school and the university levels to share experiences and to explore the integration of new technologies with foreign language instruction.

Jointly hosted by China Computer-Assisted Language Learning Association (ChinaCALL), Foreign Languages and Mass Communication School of Beijing Jiaotong University and the School of Online and Continuing Education of Beijing Foreign Studies University, 2014 International Symposium on CALL is the third grand meeting of CALL in China.
