Comparing CALL Approaches: Self-access versus hybrid classes

Just noting here for future reference...
The Journal of the JALT CALL SIG

In an article entitled Comparing CALL Approaches: Self-access versus hybrid classes by Michael Redfield & Peter Campbell of Osaka Keizai University, published in The JALT CALL Journal, Vol. 1, No. 3, December 2005, pp. 50-61, the authors write
With the steady increase of computer laboratories dedicated to language learning in many institutions in recent years, it is hardly surprising that self-access learning materials have attracted a significant amount of attention from second language learning textbook and software development companies. As Little (2001, p. 29) describes, the development of these self-access environments over the past two decades has been the “single most important development affecting the learning of foreign languages in the world.”
