Abstract

We looked at the ‘blend’ from a broader perspective, and conducted experiments to ascertain the effectiveness of blending Paper and Web based learning. The learning model we examined was the “self-study” model. Specifically we used a paper-based correspondence course as a model, and sought to identify the difference between blended learning and paper-only learning. The results of our experiments proved that the Paper + Web Blended Learning is more effective than a paper-only “self-study” type of learning. Furthermore, we looked at the specifications of the Paper materials that would be used in the blended learning. We made several different paper materials with different specifications and compared the effectiveness of each in our experiments. As a result, we were able to confirm that paper materials with conventional ‘standalone’ textbook characteristics were not as effective as the ones that were designed as an ‘organic link’ to the Web.
