Abstract: Homework is an essential part of learning a foreign language as it allows students to review, practice and reinforce contents explained in class. In the context of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in Spanish secondary education, homework is currently based on workbook activities that focus on grammar and vocabulary and that students often copy or improvise during class hours. This project aims at investigating the affordances of Aules, the Valencian Community Moodle-based Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to present homework that students are motivated to finish and, most importantly, ensue an improvement of results and homework hand-in percentages. To assess it, two groups of students in the final year of compulsory secondary education (4th ESO) are presented with homework in two ways: group A using Aules and group B using a paper-based workbook. At the end of a six-week period results including the homework completion percentages and the 2nd term results for the subject are compared. The data should prove that students doing VLE homework completed the homework at higher rates than the students with workbook homework and the students with lower averages were able to improve their results.
