Abstract (en)

This current study explores how video sharing and online discussions promote learning autonomy in English language classes in a public university for the duration of the quarantine established by the Colombian government during the coronavirus pandemic. This study was conducted with 127 engineering and administration undergraduates from a public university in the department of Boyacá. This was a qualitative case study which intended to identify the extent video sharing and online discussions increase learner’s autonomy behaviors in English language learning .The instruments for data collection were student journal, student artifact, including video recordings and online discussions, interviews, and questionnaires. An open coding analysis was utilized and the results revealed that the degree of autonomous behaviors gradually could be fostered by the implementation of video sharing. Results also indicated that students are receptive to online writing discussions and  showed how motivation plays a vital role in learning English and the achievement of own learning goals.

Abstract (es)

Este estudio explora como el compartir videos y las discusiones en línea promueven la autonomía en las clases de inglés en una Universidad pública durante el aislamiento establecido por el gobierno nacional durante la pandemia del coronavirus. Este estudio fue realizado con 127 estudiantes de ingeniería y administración de una universidad pública en el departamento de Boyacá. Este fue un caso de estudio cualitativo que pretendía identificar hasta qué punto el uso compartido de videos y las discusiones en línea aumentan los comportamientos de autonomía del alumno en el aprendizaje del idioma inglés. Los instrumentos para recolectar datos fueron diarios de campo, videos hechos por los estudiantes, discusiones en línea, entrevistas y cuestionarios. Se utilizó un análisis de codificación abierta y los resultados revelaron que el grado de comportamientos autónomos podría fomentarse gradualmente mediante la implementación del uso compartido de videos. Los resultados revelaron que la autonomía del aprendiz puede ser mejorada a través de la implementación de compartir videos y discusiones escritas en línea. Los resultados también indicaron que los estudiantes son receptivos a las discusiones de escritura en línea y revelaron cómo la motivación juega un papel importante en el aprendizaje del inglés y el logro de objetivos de aprendizaje propios.
