This paper will report on work to develop a resource-based professional development programme for secondary-school teachers of English in China as part of an ongoing Sino-UK project to develop innovative e-learning courseware.

I will show how needs analysis contributed to the materials development process and how multimedia resources have been exploited, alongside more conventional resources, in the design of tasks that encourage reflection, interaction and enquiry. The results of a small-scale pilot and the conclusions drawn from this will also be discussed.
