Abstract

The exclusive purpose of this activity was to explore the role of electronic learning pedagogical tools in EFL classrooms while learning L2 at the Department of English Linguistics, the Islamia University of Bahawalpur. The learners’’ questionnaire was developed as a data collection tool. The BS students were the population of the above-mentioned university and the department. The collected data of 209 learners was analysed through the SPSS. The results of the current study showed that the study's participants had the most positive opinions toward the use of electronic learning pedagogical aids in EFL classes. The study themes and current theories of online learning were taken into consideration when analysing the data. Additionally, by employing electronic learning pedagogical tools to reduce the barriers of the electronic learning environment, learning proficiency learners might be able to improve their language learning outcomes. The study concludes that before implementing any electronic learning pedagogical tools, professionals should take into account the needs of EFL students, the curriculum, and the technological proficiency of teaching staff.
