Abstract This article discusses the application of the established principles of instructed language learning in a cyber fact-to-face environment supported by an advanced Synchronous Learning Management System (SLMS). Following a critical review of the use of SLMS in distance language learning, the main body of the article focuses on the discussion of results from an empirical study, in reference to the relevant principles of instructed language learning formulated by Ellis (2005). These results indicate that principles of instructed language learning for traditional classroom-based learning are equally applicable in cyber face-to-face learning, but with their own characteristics. Recommendations for the effective use of SLMSs for online synchronous language learning are also put forward.
