Abstract

Exposing EFL students to authentic materials has been considered a valuable learning experience as it can expose students to the target language. This study explores the EFL teachers’ practices using authentic materials, especially in their e-learning courses, including 1) identifying the kinds of the authentic e-materials and 2) investigating the teachers’ consideration in using the authentic e-materials. This study’s setting was at the English Language Education Department (ELED) of one Indonesian private university. The descriptive case study was adopted as the research design. The data were gathered by interviewing four teachers and observing the teaching materials used in the e-learning platforms. The findings indicated that the teacher-participants used several types of authentic e-materials categorized into three: audio, visual, and audiovisual or multimedia materials. The findings also revealed the teachers’ considerations in using the authentic e-materials in e-learning. The teachers considered three main factors in integrating authentic e-materials, including the materials, the content, and the preparation time. Also, the teacher-participants indicated various beliefs on exposing their students to authentic e-materials. However, they agreed that providing various authentic materials into EFL learning, especially into the e-learning practices, was considered viable and meaningful.
