چکیده

This exploratory case study reports on the findings of Persian teachers’ motivation and use of Farsi-Web-based Learning Resources (FWBLRs) in classroom instruction.‎ Data were inductively gathered from ten teachers’ and five students’ use experiences of FWBLRs in the context of a smart school in Tehran, Iran.‎ Focus groups and face-to-face semi-structured interviews, repeated in several rounds, were used for data collection.‎ Thematic analysis elaborate on the teachers’ perceived pedagogical usability of FWBLRs.‎ Five main motivations of pedagogical usability emerged from the findings: (a) desirability;‎ (b) content accessibility;‎ (c) student-centred teaching support;‎ (d) multimedia interactivity;‎ and (e) feasible classroom instruction via simulation.‎ The study suggests that the effective use of Web-based Learning Resources (WBLRs) would require some considerations, including the use context and corresponding educational policies.‎ This can be of value to the researchers in the field as well as stakeholders of WBLRs.‎ In practice, this can support the development of effective and fun teaching–learning environments.‎
