中文摘要

This study focused on the use of reflective learning e-journals in a university web-based English as a
foreign language (EFL) course. In the study, a multimedia-based English programme comprising fifteen
different units was delivered online as a one-semester instructional course. Ninety-eight undergraduate
students participated, and they were divided into two groups: the treatment group used reflective
learning e-journals, while the control group completed content-related exercises. The study investigated
the effects of reflective learning e-journals and how students used them to aid learning. Results show
that when learning from web-based instruction, students who used reflective learning e-journals outperformed
students who did not do so in terms of reading comprehension. Using reflective e-journals
improved the academic performance of learners in the online course. In addition, journal writing students
claimed that they also improved their organisational skills and writing abilities through their
reflective learning e-journal writing and found the journal writing to be a very helpful tool in reviewing
the course and preparing for the exam.
