In an effort to deepen the content and cultural study of first-year French courses in a way that was both affordable for students and sustainable for the program, we created online learning modules composed of web sites, video, text, images, and interactive activities. These modules are used both in and out of the classroom as a means to easily deliver interesting content to students. This project has resulted in an increased awareness and interest in French culture by our students as well as content-enriched courses that are easily updated without requiring another costly textbook.
