Abstract

Hybrid learning integrates conventional teaching and learning with educational technologies and combines the advantages of on-site class and online learning. Edmodo, as a cloud-based informative Social Networking Site (SNS) has much been used in entirely virtual as well as hybrid learning all over the world. This paper presents a discussion of lecturers' and students’ perspectives of the adoption of Edmodo as a learning platform in some hybrid English as a foreign language (EFL) writing classes, with a particular focus on its benefits. With two lecturers and 65 students as the participants, the collection of data in this study was through observation, questionnaire, and semi-structured interviews. Generally, the results indicated that the lecturers and the students shared positive experiences towards the adoption of Edmodo as a supplement to the on-site writing instruction. Specifically, the participants mentioned that “user-friendly features,” “opportunity to collaborative learning,” and “enhancement of students’ participation” are among its benefits. This study implies that understanding users’ perceptions of the learning platforms used in a hybrid class may maximize the impact of technology integration into education.
