Authors : Maslawati Mohamad, Azura Omar, Supyan Hussin, Zaini Amir and Fazilah Idris

Abstract: In recent years, the technological explosion has greatly impacted the teaching and learning of English language courses at higher institutions of learning in Malaysia. As such, many English language teachers have attempted to integrate the usage of ICT in their lessons. The integration of ICT in English language classrooms, however must be thought of carefully and implemented wisely to ensure its effectiveness. Not only does it involve infrastructure and technology, the integration of ICT also involves a lot of other aspects; especially students, readiness, interest, apprehension level and competencies. Motivated by this current scenario, this study investigates students perceptions toward online quiz, suggested websites and language notes which are parked in the institution’s website. This study is qualitative in nature where the respondents were interviewed to obtain information regarding their perceptions. The findings prove that the online quiz, suggested websites and language notes have helped them in improving their reading, writing and presentation skills. Nevertheless, some improvements need to be made to refine the language notes, suggested websites as well as the online quiz for the betterment of the blended course. Hence, the students’ viewpoints on how the online quiz suggested websites and notes on language input could be improved are also highlighted in this present study. It is hoped that this study is able to provide better guidance towards achieving the objective of infusing ICT in language teaching and learning.
