Student learning outcomes rely on the depth and quality of their engagement in language learning. It is defined as a complex construct that consists of behavioral, cognitive, and emotional components. In addition, students’ engagement is very important in the class as it functions as a facilitator of their learning. It leads to meaningful outcomes and prevents students from dropping out.
The aim of this paper is to present how university students are engaged in designing an e-magazine. The participants in this project are 14 students who are studying in the Bachelor study program “English Language” at the Faculty of Education and Philology at “Fan S. Noli” University, in Korҫa, Albania, in their first year. This project is part of their final continuous assessment in the subject of “Text Analysis 2” in the second term of the academic year 2022-2023. Students are divided into groups and each member of the group has a specific task. They develop their own ideas and perspectives on a range of topics that are important to young people nowadays. Students work collaboratively and individually online and onsite to plan and compose a variety of content. Later, they turn their ideas into digital texts for the e-magazine. The digital tool: www.canva.com is used to design it. In the end, students download the Pdf version of the e-magazine. The results of this project are really satisfying for the students as they are involved in online research, analysis, discussion, writing, and designing an e-magazine in the English language.
