Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of blended
learning on science teaching at the higher education undergraduate level
in terms of student perceptions of blended learning. Student experiences
and attitudes were used to evaluate the effectiveness of blended
learning. This paper describes a quantitative study that was conducted in
a science education methods course in the department of early childhood
education. Instrument reliability and validity studies were made, and
used to measure the effectiveness of the blended learning environment.
The data analysis showed that students’ experiences and attitudes are
positive for blended learning. However, when designing blended learning
environments the technical aspects can hinder student learning.
