Abstract—Previous studies highlight positive effects of cooperative learning on language learning motivation. Many attempts have been made to implement cooperative leaning in language classes. Now with the use of computer-mediated communications tools, language learners can learn cooperatively online, out of class. Online cooperative learning provides language learners to communicate with native speakers of their target language, and leads to enhance their motivation in language learning. This study purposed to examine the effects of online cooperative learning on language learners’ motivation in KFL. Results indicate that online cooperative learning promotes learners’ intrinsic motivation in KFL.

Index Terms—Cooperative learning, intrinsic motivation, Korean as a foreign language, online learning.
