The paper examines the influence of incorporating information and communication technology (ICT) tools to help learners to promote learning awareness and self-monitoring skills. An open-ended online questionnaire survey was administered to 15 course participants at the conclusion of the course. The data were analysed on the basis of the percentage of responses according to the influence of ICT tools from the perspectives of the two above-mentioned aspects. The responses from the questionnaire were used to support and triangulate the findings. In addition, reflection reports submitted by all the participants were examined to determine the participants' perceptions of the influence of ICT tools on their own learning throughout the course. In general, the findings showed encouraging results in both learning awareness and self-monitoring skills. According to the findings, individual differences in terms of personality traits and ICT knowledge determined the preference for ICT tools, regardless of the specific pedagogical purposes for incorporating these tools. In the future, we aim to use peer learning techniques to develop peer encouragement and motivation among learners.
