Abstract

This paper will share some of the findings of a study on students' reaction to an online forum in hybrid learning courses. ESL learners from diversified background expressed their notion of participation in online forum and shared their experiences during the online forums. Data was elicited via a survey and supported with data from focus group interviews from selected learners. The findings revealed several positive efforts made by learners. On the whole, the learners were not quite ready as instructors do go full force to see and create this online platform as means to enrich their language learning experience.
