The aim of the research is to discover the challenges regarding computer-mediated collaborative writing (CMCW) EFL learners encounter in academic writing courses and investigate their perceptions about CMCW activities via online applications. The researchers used qualitative and quantitative methods by carrying out questionnaires and interviews with 80 freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors (interviews for 15 students) at the Faculty of Foreign Languages of Van Lang University (VLU) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The findings of the study suggest common difficulties EFL learners face when taking part in CMCW activities to help improve lecturers’ teaching writing methods as well as students’ writing performance during their learning process.
