The unforeseen global outbreak of Covid-19 has led to thriving online learning across the world. Students in Vietnam have been no exception. During shifting from onsite learning mode to online one in 9 weeks in the second semester of the school year 2019-2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic, high school students in Gia Lai province, a remote mountainous area in Vietnam were confronted with myriads of setbacks in their new way of learning, an unprecedented online mode. The present study, therefore, explores high school students' level of interaction engagement in online learning. An online survey questionnaire was conducted in seven high schools in Gia Lai province, with a sample of 321 students at grade 12. The result of the study also shows that most high school students were not well-prepared for this type of online delivery classroom due to the lack of proper information technology literacy, poor infrastructure conditions such as the equipment of digital devices, Wi-fi connection, online learning apps and tools. It is found that most students show their low level of interaction in online learning due to their anxiety about the unfamiliar learning environment. It is suggested that teachers be inspirations to students via providing a wide range of zoom classroom activities such as roll calling, topic discussion and question posing. They also take other technological tools into consideration as videos and links that might promote students' engagement both inside and outside the classroom.
