The coronavirus pandemic has forced the vast majority of teachers to drift away from the key part of their teaching practice, the daily face-to-face interaction which helps to intrigue and nurture students' interest in learning. It is, therefore, important for teachers to offset this shortcoming by finding ways to keep their learners motivated during the time of online learning. This can be well implemented if teachers have a good grasp of factors that could influence students' learning motivation. The study was conducted to identify such factors, with the participation of 100 English-major sophomores. Both quantitative and qualitative data collection instruments including questionnaires and semi-structured interviews are adopted to obtain large-scale, yet insightful findings concerning both students' extrinsic and intrinsic motivation. The result from the study shows that participants tend to suffer from motivation loss due to the lack of self-discipline, interaction and the frustration with course requirements which have not been adapted to online learning situation. Regarding the external factors, situational problems are mainly responsible their loss of learning interest. These include inadequate unstable internet connection and their home environment which is not appropriate for learning activities. These findings hopefully can inform instructors about the factors that might affect students' motivation in online learning, helping them to seek proper measures to enhance students' experience in particular.
