In this study learning activities were designed with the focus on students’ English writing and speaking performance. The Virtual Pen (VPen), multimedia web annotation system were provided to help student participate at learning activities by creating annotations, sharing them and giving feedback to peers’ work. One experiment was conducted with VPen in an English class for a period of one semester and the following results were obtained. Students perceived VPen as easy to use, useful during participation at learning activities and students had positive attitude toward using VPen. Besides, students found designed activities as useful in improving their writing and speaking performance and playful. Furthermore, students’ actual VPen usage had significant correlation with speaking and writing performance. Further investigation demonstrated that students’ speaking and writing performance significantly correlated with learning achievement. Based on our finding we conclude that learning activities designed in this study with VPen system employed facilitate students’ writing and speaking skill and therefore improve their learning achievement.
