Abstract

In this exploratory study, the author examines both students’ and teachers’ perceptions of Moxtra, a cross-platform cloud collaboration service, as a blended learning tool in a language course. Participants were 242 first-year students studying General English and 8 teachers at the Bunkyo English Communication Centre (BECC) at Hiroshima Bunkyo Women’s University in Japan. Both students and teachers were given an iPad self-efficacy survey along with a Moxtra Perceptions and Attitudes questionnaire with student survey results being followed by principal components analysis. Findings showed positive indicators regarding the potential for Moxtra in a language learning context, not only as a tool to support blended learning, but also as a tool to support teachers in a collaborative working environment. With that said, the results also indicate that for Moxtra to reach its full potential, students need to be inculcated, nurtured and encouraged to engage fully with the application. Similarly, teachers must also be encouraged to utilize Moxtra’s many features with their students in order to benefit from all of its affordances. The study provides both curriculum developers and language instructors with insights into the adoption of Moxtra in an EFL context.
