Abstract: Autonomous English learning is a great concern of English teachers. But English learning needs a context. Blackboard Academic Suite is such a learning platform that supplies students with a real learning context and many opportunities to collaborate with each other, hence facilitates their meaning formation. A model of autonomous English learning on Blackboard is established. An experiment is made to check the efficiency of the model between the control group and the experimental group, with each group having 30 students from paralleled English major classes. After being analysed by the independent samples t-test, the result is promising: the differences of all test items are below 0.05, which means that the differences between the control group and the experimental group are significant, and the students from the experimental group improve their English learning abilities greatly.
