MyLinE is different from other available online language learning resources in several aspects. The following are some of its distinctive features:

Features of MyLinE


     1. LEARNING RESOURCES FOR HIGHER EDUCATION

The learning resources are designed and developed specifically to facilitate learning for academic and professional purposes. The resources are useful not only to the users in Malaysia but also users in other countries where English is learned as a second or foreign language.

     2. RESOURCES FOR LEARNING ENGLISH AND LEARNING IN ENGLISH

The instructional materials and activities include not only resources for learning English, such as input and exercises on grammar and language use, but also informative resources in English on various disciplines and professions, such as information on the career path of a specific profession. Thus, learners are encouraged to learn not just the language but also to construct knowledge using the language.

     3. INTERACTIVE AND SELF-EXPLANATORY ACTIVITIES
Unlike other language learning websites, the pattern of information presented in MyLinE contains input on a topic, exercises to reinforce understanding of the input and answers with explanation to provide feedback on students' performance. The provision of self-explanatory language feedback promotes learner autonomy which further improves users' level of English proficiency.
