Presentation title
An Investigation into Effectiveness of Online Learning Media in Promoting Learners’ Autonomy: A Case study in an Online Writing Course of EFL students at a private Vietnamese university
Presentation abstract
During the Covid – 19 epidemic, online courses were utilized at all levels of schooling. Enhancing students' autonomy has also become one of the most pressing concerns in these online courses as there is no direct connection between teachers and students during this period. To tackle with the issue, it is believed that teachers should use effective online learning tools to engage students and foster their self-study process. However, there may be a fact that no matter how many tools have been used, their effectiveness may not be examined thoroughly. As a result, the research was done in an online Writing class to model how one teacher used online learning media in her classroom and assess how effective online learning media were through both quantitative and qualitative methods with academic results (pretest, post-test), questionnaires, interviews, and observation. One hundred and thirty-four 2nd year EFL students (4 classes) of Van Lang University participated in the study. The findings revealed that some used strategies were quite beneficial in enhancing student autonomy, while others were severely constrained. Moreover, the study results are simultaneously beneficial to reading, speaking, and listening skills to keep the students on track of self-improvement and well-prepared for a career after graduation.
