- English as a foreign language, remote learning, YouTube, students’ experience
- This pandemic situation stimulates transformation of educational programs worldwide. Right now, English Language Teaching programs are transforming most of the onsite activities into remote learning which involve synchronous and asynchronous learning and communication. One of the popular technologies for teaching and learning English is YouTube. For most of the Web 2.0 generation, YouTube provides users with learning resources that offer communicative features effective for both synchronous and asynchronous learning. However, the extent to which YouTube has been used and experienced by tertiary students in specific contexts during this pandemic situation has yet to be explored to inform policy and practices of EFL education. This research draws from the results of a case study that employed questionnaire and open-ended interviews conducted among university students in an Indonesian locale. The findings indicate that YouTube was popularly used in current online EFL classrooms. The students’ experience revealed positive attitude toward the use of YouTube in EFL learning. Nevertheless, it was not as frequently used for other purposes such as entertainment and learning other subjects. At the same time, potential drawbacks were identified to inform improvement of teaching and learning practices in future.
