Engaged learners have higher learning motivation and positive behaviors which promote active learning. Although it is generally accepted that student engagement is an essential factor to help learners achieve academic successfulness and to become lifelong learners, barriers, like long preparation time and students expectation, have forced educators to reconsider the benefits of engaged learning. In this paper, we propose a practical content creation learning process through an online discussion forum to cultivate learners engagement and their activeness under a blended learning environment. The longitudinal study was carried out in two primary classes in Panyu, China, for two years. All data were collected and analyzed to provide quantitative results that students Chinese performances and participation enhanced because the design of the learning activity through content creation increased the engagement of students, which resulted in active learning among learners. This paper is an extended research based on an abridged paper submitted to ICTE 2019, to fill research gaps in both identifying the role of learning activity design in the process of cultivating learners engaged learning and active learning.
