Abstract

This study intends to show the potential of using the Internet as a supportive means for teaching and learning. Computer-mediated communication (CMC) is one example of such technology. In this study, the writer highlights the use of an online discussion, as another form of CMC, in which the participants can discuss some topics intensively without the constraints of time. This research was qualitative in nature. The writer analyzed the sentences written in the online discussion held by the lecturer of the History of Modern Thoughts to support the subject as one of the subjects taught at Petra Christian University. The sentences were made by the Iecturer and the second semester students taking the subject. The writer analyzed the data based on: the grammatical errors the participants made, the types of motivational states the participants showed in their sentences by using Keller's Apathy Boredom Anxiety Flow (ABAF) model and the students' freely spoken expression. Having analyzed the data, the writer found out that the errors in the data mainly were categorized into: Adjectives, Adverbs, Articles, Clauses, Comparisons, Conditionals, Noun types, Passive sentences, Prepositions, Pronouns, Tenses, Verb types, Modifying phrases, and Dictions. The most frequent error was in the Tenses section, the second was Verb Types, the next was Noun Types, and the fourth frequent error was in the Clauses section. As for the motivational states, two of the Keller's motivational states namely 'Apathy' and 'Boredom' were not identified in the online discussion, due to the Indonesian cultural factor that affected the students greatly. There were also very few sentences showing what they feel about a certain thing, and how they express it clearly. In most cases, these sentences were considered unlikely to be spoken in the classroom environment. Finally, the writer suggests some ways to maintain a useful online discussion that will meet the students' needs for intensive discussions on the topics, which will unlikely be fulfilled in the classroom due to the time limitation.
