Abstract: An attempt was made to teach grammar to freshman students at the College of Languages and Translation (COLT) using WebCT, Moodle and Nicenet. The aims of the study were: (1) to find out whether the complexity of an online course design would affects its frequency of usage; (2) to identify the technological and linguistic barriers to students' participation and interaction; and (3) to report students' views of their online learning experience. The impact of online instruction on EFL freshman students' grammar achievement was based on quantitative analyses of the pre and posttests. The effect of online instruction on freshman students' attitudes was based on qualitative analyses of students' responses to a post-treatment questionnaire as well as the author's daily observations and notes.
