|ICT (Information and Communication Technology) offers versatile usage in classrooms and comes in many different forms. This paper presents an observation and reflection of students' questionnaire results of a web based English class conducted from December 2012 to February 2013. The class was successful in terms of autonomy and engaging setting, but class design appears to have room for improvement. Also there seems to be a gap in computer usage between what teachers think is useful and what students wish to use. This paper first examines the concepts and previous classroom use of ICT, and then the class setting is explained and discussed with the survey results.
