In the boom of the Industrial Revolution 4.0, the application of information technology in language education are increasingly popular, from primary to higher education, in both developed and developing countries. However, there is the lack of the global model which could be used as a standard for application of systems of e-learning or computer-assisted language learning. This gap leads to barriers and controversies about effectiveness of information technology in language education. Based on the practice of language teaching and learning, observation, and evaluation of e-learning systems in learning and teaching contexts, the researcher forms the model, named as TR-model, which could be considered as the standard that supports educators and teachers in implementing e-learning or computer-based systems in language education. In this paper, for the first time, the researcher introduces the TR-model to the professional community, including the principles and potential of using the model to ensure the quality of language teaching and learning with the assistance of information technology.
