Christopher M. Jones, Judith Frommer
Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014


The Portes ouvertes CD-ROM was produced as an integrated part of a first-year method for elementary French of the same title. The method itself was created by a five-person authoring team including Margaret Haggstrom of Loyola College in Maryland, Judith Frommer and Marie- France Bunting of Harvard University, Laurent Patenotte of Philips Exeter Academy, and Christopher M. Jones of Carnegie Mellon University and published in 1998 by Holt, Rinehart. This article details the design and production of the CD-ROM with reference to video and textbook elements where such reference is indispensable to an understanding of pedagogical foundations.
