Abstract
The unexpected descent of Covid-19 has driven many countries into lockdown. Universities have
been forced to shut down physical spaces, which has left many teachers with the daunting task of
transitioning their courses to the online environment. This article describes an EAP teacher's process
of applying Chakowa's (2016) Digitally Enhanced Learning (DEL) model to adapt face-to-face EAP
materials for online teaching and learning. First, it concisely reviews the DEL before illustrating how
the model was applied, along with personal reflections on procedural steps and technological choices. After that, empirical data is introduced, which supports that the DEL can be a useful tool for adapting classroom teaching materials for online learning. The article concludes with recommendations on how other teachers can apply the DEL.
