The EAP Toolkit
The EAP Toolkit (for licence by institutions*)
The EAP Toolkit is a comprehensive set of interactive learning resources for developing the language and study skills of international students and students whose first language is not English, for higher or further education. It comprises over 100 items (80+ hours of study) and can be used by students for independent study or by teachers in the classroom. It is available for licence by institutions and can be delivered over the web to students at a particular institution or through a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) such as Blackboard or Moodle. It has been licensed since 2004 and underwent a third refreshment in 2014.
