This study is aimed at exploring the application of Google Classroom as a blended tool for the development of the learning model of English writing course for English-major students at Hong Duc University. A survey questionnaire on students’ experience of Google Classroom and an analysis of two paragraphs that students wrote were used as the data sources. The results showed the students’ positive responses to the program and their considerable improvement in writing skill.
