The shift of information form that is more technological oriented has encouraged EFL teachers to develop their students' literacy skill. This study used web based resources in order to motivate EFL learning and develop students' digital literacy. In conducting this study, twenty students were involved. The data were collected by means of questionnaires consisting of five aspects; students' self-efficacy, learning challenge, learning curiosity, learning involvement and recognition for digital learning. The results of the study show that students are motivated by the use of web-based resources in EFL learning with more appropriate and authentic materials. However, some considerations are needed to be taken into account in selecting the suitable web-based resources. Using web based resources can be an alternative to help the students be motivated in developing their digital literacy learning.
