Abstract

Among teacher’s responsibilities in the classroom besides delivering quality teaching, treating all the students equally, is giving the learners the space to become creative, to enhance their problemsolving skills and give them the opportunity to become autonomous learners. Libri is a learning management tool used at South East European University for all courses. It is used to achieve some of the classes goals and aims. However, it can also be used to give the students the opportunity to become autonomous since they are working even from home independently, to become creative and find solution to the problems as assigned in the tasks, and develop their problemsolving skills since they have to find solutions to the problems presented. We assumed that this would enhance learner creativity and autonomy, and yet give them the opportunity to use English outside of the classroom environment. Besides this, it will also trigger students’ problemsolving skills The participants of this study are 70 students taking ESP Business English, aged 18-35 years old, all non-native speakers of English, from different national, language, cultural backgrounds. Both, the qualitative and quantitative method were used to analyse the data gathered. The students involved in the study were given a questionnaire after they completed the task. While checking the students’ responses the teacher was able to see how they approached the tasks given. There was also a questionnaire for teachers, who used the same approach and used Libri for the same purpose.
