An Analysis of Study Behavior and Performance in a Blended Learning Undergraduate Programming Course, By Nancy Acemian (Concordia University-Montreal), Patrick Devey (Concordia University-Montreal), and Richard F. Schmid (Concordia University)


by Hui Soo Chae ó April 10, 2006

Blended learning is a mixed-modality approach that merges elements from instructor-led teaching with those from e-Learning to enhance the learnerís instructional experience. Does this type of approach really work? The activities of students in an undergraduate course were tracked for an entire semester. Although the course was offered in the traditional lecture format, video recordings of those lectures and Tablet PC annotations were made available on a website. Students were given free reign to come to class and/or use the online materials. Use of the online materials increased significantly as the semester progressed, showing a marked change in studying behaviors, informed by performance feedback. No significant differences were found in achievement, demonstrating the efficacy of the multi-modal instructional delivery system.

At present, we do not have the full-text of this article in digital format.
