Abstract: abstract:This paper reports on the online reading strategies used by four EFL learners. These four participants, with diverse language proficiencies and computer skills, were chosen to complete online reading tasks. Their navigation behaviors observed in videotaping and interview data were transcribed and coded. Four types of strategies were generated: Navigating strategies, Information-gathering strategies, Interface-changing strategies, and Usability problem-reporting strategies. These strategies assisted readers in navigating online texts smoothly, finding relevant information to build up background knowledge, establishing a personal environment to facilitate online reading, and making suggestions for user-friendly Web design. The results also showed that students with better computer skills used comparatively more strategies than those with average computer skills. They were more able to personalize the reading environment for increased motivation and to utilize multimedia features for better comprehension. Even lower proficiency students with better computer skills could increase their background knowledge and language learning repertoires by searching outwards and communicating with peers.
