According to Kohonen (2001), making choices about learning contents and processes, reflecting on learners’ learning process and being aware of their achievements, and discovering new needs are the essential parts of developing learner autonomy by technological applications. This study aims to create a basic English course on Canvas with numerous activities to improve learners’ English abilities. For the study, 143 first-year college students participated in the survey to find out the difficulties in their basic English learning and recommend some interesting and useful learning activities to reinforce basic English for them. Based on the statistical analyses, the following results were shown: First, learners faced some problems with unfamiliar topics, complicated grammar, contrastive stress, pausing on commas, endings sounds, and silent letters in pronunciation. In addition, they felt hard to deal with different topics and types of tasks in four skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Lastly, the study found various learning activities that were learners’ preferences such as games, exercises, watching English movies, reading English books, etc. Possible reasons behind the current results were considered and implications were discussed. All of the activities were designed through different technological applications.
