This study was conducted to remedy the shortcomings of the curriculum that the authors had developed for the course Consecutive Interpreting. The curriculum had been designed adopting a social constructivist framework and implemented for a semester to detect the imperfections. Since the main problems centered on the paucity of learners' interactions and the limitedness of the existing interactions to few learners, the face-to-face class was complemented with an online class on Moodle. The blended design was implemented for another semester to evaluate its efficiency in solving the problems. Three public forums were used for discussions. The study revealed that Forum is an efficient module in enhancing interactions. Besides, the differences between the mean participation rate of students with different gender, age and semester of entrance turned out not to be significant, indicating that such variations in the online class had not been barriers hindering learners from getting into interaction.
