English communication is a crucial skill that should be mastered by students at the university level due to the demand of study skills comprehension. Nevertheless, students still have low motivation and lack of practicing English proficiency as substantial ability in academic field. This condition is strengthened by the limited owing to the required time in English for Academic Purposes (EAP) classes. Covering the ongoing situation, information and communications technology (ICT) presents an virtual educational setting that is able to provide accessible effective materials to assist participants in learning. In addition, the task-based approach is taken based on the students’ need to practice authentic English through meaningful tasks. This study aims at analyzing the students’ perceptions on the implementation of integrating ICT into EAP materials through a task-based approach and identifying the implications. We employ descriptive qualitative method, where a survey was carried out to obtain some information about the students’ viewpoint regarding the materials. This results reveals that the practice of integrating ICT into English Academic Purposes (EAP) materials through task-based approach promotes students’ motivation and gains meaningful learning experiences.
