This chapter is an important contribution to the book New Innovations in teaching and Leanring in Higher Education that reports on the evaluation and assessment of the influences of a Web 2.0 Learning Management System (LMS) in an EFL course in Vietnam. In this chapter, we discuss the learning environment in Vietnam through this technology. When reading this chapter, you will gain the following three insights: 1) Vietnamese EFL students’ reflection on a Web 2.0 LMS; 2) the advantage of LMS for educational purposes to motivate students; 3) confirm the intrinsic motivation is an important element for the process of learner autonomy.
