Elsewhere, I discuss the emergence of ubiquitous computing. However, notwithstanding Oxford's pioneering realization of the importance of language learning strategies to language learning - which has been widely recognized - little research attention has been paid to the strategies actually used in accessing online resources. A variety of theoretical publications have suggested that significant qualitative differences exist between traditional and online learners and learning. Following my earlier literature review of such research, I now identify the potential for empirical research into online language learning strategies that are used by students to complement traditional L2 learning. I present here a research proposal that subjects the theoretical schema previously discussed to empirical research of the kind performed in the papers previously reviewed. This includes conducting think-aloud protocols together with interviews and subsequent analysis. The research proposed exploits the computer-based Internet environment. I address a variety of specific research questions.
