This article focuses on the challenges faced by students and teachers while adapting to learning and teaching styles needed to implement and conduct a course completely online instead of in a classroom during a 2-month-summer class at a local university in Thailand during the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. The most urgent plans were training and educating both teachers and students about living and working around the virus, this included working and studying remotely. Choosing a user-friendly learning platform was also another challenge. The digital resources used in English pronunciation class were YouTube, Quizlet, and FlipGrid. The three applications combined and used effectively in Schoology as a user-friendly platform. Moreover, the reflective practice was used to get students’ reflection toward online lesson throughout the course. Unfortunately, most teachers at the English department did not have enough time to prepare or adapt to the changes because the mandate was issued to close to the start date of the summer classes. Creating and planning online classes were proving to be absolute challenges. The information and the conclusion of this panel will help educators to prepare and choose the best way to construct a blended online learning classroom in a limited period of time more effectively.
