Abstract

As Internet became more widespread, the use of printed dictionaries decreased. However, users’ abilities to consult online dictionaries are still not adequately developed. The project Esplorare (con) i Dizionari Digitali – through Moodle platform – allows users to carry out online exercises in order to develop both their linguistic knowledge and their ability to consult online dictionaries of different languages. We present the results of an study that involved around 300 students of Italian secondary schools, showing how the structure of the platform and the exercises, common to all languages, leads to transfer of skills. The exercises were created using Möbius Assessment, an automatic assessment system, already tested for scientific subjects.
