Introducing and implementing online teaching methods naturally comes with its fair share of challenges in various forms and guises. These are in fact part and parcel of the process and teachers who intend to introduce online and other technical means of teaching to a context that is yet to be familiarized with these concepts should consider these difficulties prior to planning their lessons. This is a reflection paper on a previous study conducted to evaluate an ESL writing assisting tool jointly developed with the department of Computer Sciences. In the process, various challenges were predicted and documented. I have decided to thoroughly investigate the issues faced and if find out whether they were reported by other researchers working in similar contexts and from a wider perspective. The article describes theses challenges, examines their potential negative impact on the learning process, and suggests feasible framework to overcome them.
