Website tutorial learning lasted almost three years at Open University, Semarang, Central Java. However, in its implementation in writing classes, there were many challenges in writing scientific papers. Therefore, this study aims to describe the perceptions and challenges of teachers towards implementing gamification and Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT)in learning to write scientific papers. The research used a mixed method design, namely a combination of quantitative and qualitative, primarily explanatory design. The subjects of this study were 35 elementary school teachers in Pokjar jepara who were currently studying for their bachelor's degree at the Open University of Semarang. The teachers are, on average aged 25 to 50,with four males and 31 females. In addition, this study used research instruments, namely questionnaires and interviews.
