The use of online learning in education has increased rapidly during the COVID pandemic. Both teachers and students are more familiarized with technologies in online teaching and learning. With the readiness of technology, some educational institutes started adopting more blended learning after the resumption of face-to-face learning. However, some institutes consider online mode as direct replacement of face-to-face mode. Without thoughtful redesign of pedagogy, the effectiveness of teaching and learning was affected. Educators believe teaching and learning would be impacted by thoughtful redesign on blended learning. This research took place in a School which provided online English learning with pedagogical redesign for complementing formal School’s face-to-face learning. Individual interviews were conducted to collect the learning experiences and thematic analysis was adopted for analysing the results. The results show learning experiences were enhanced via appropriate redesign of instruction, learning activities and assessments. The students were highly motivated in the online learning environment, and they enjoyed the learning contents and learning activities. The learning experiences and effectiveness were enhanced. This study result affirms positive impacts on the redesign of pedagogy in online learning of English learning for complementing formal face-to-face learning.
