This study assesses the benefits of a multimedia e-Learning environment in a pre-college language program in engineering education, based on the moodle platform. This prototype e-Learning system is designed to provide attractive course materials for technological literacy education for a wider audience, including first-year students, high school students, and foreign students in pre-college courses. In order to engage a wider range of students, engineering faculty paired up with Japanese language teachers to develop an e-Learning system, creating four modules that include video lectures, auto glossary for technical terms, reading materials with narration, and two types of comprehension activities. Evaluation results indicate that a multimedia e-Learning environment is effective and has the potential to better prepare students for engineering education, especially for advanced learners of Japanese in pre-engineering courses.
