This research aims to 1) describe the use of technology in Budi Utama Multi-lingual School in Yogyakart,a Indonesia, 2) investigate the development of students' Chinese vocabulary used in creating a story on online cartoon, and 3) identify students' attitude towards the application of collaborative learning in Mandarin language learning. The research design is based on a quasi-experiment using both qualitative and quantitative approaches to collect and analyze data. Three classes participated in this study: one class acting as the control group using text-based instruction where students work individually on a cartoon without online resources; the other two classes being the experimental groups 1 and 2. In experimental group 1, students worked individually on an online cartoon whereas in experimental group 2, students worked collaboratively to an online cartoon. All participants are Grade 5 students of Budi Utama Multi-lingual School in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The collected and analyzed data include performances on Chinese vocabulary, notes, and video recordings of lessons. It is anticipated that experimental group 2 outperforms the other two groups and that experimental group 1 performs better than the control group.
