Abstract

Abstract: The current state of research on blended learning can be summarized as “blended is better than virtual and not worse than face-to-face teaching”. There are few attempts to define the conditions under which a blended learning setting will enhance or hinder the students’ learning process. This paper presents a comparative evaluation of a blended learning course design and a traditional classroom design in a campus-based university setting. Results indicate that contrary to what is typically expected, both pedagogical methods yield very similar results. Findings from this investigation can better inform academe and lead to recommendations for a state of the art “blend 2.0.”
