This paper presents findings of a study of post-secondary course delivery formats (online, face-to-face, blended learning) from the perspective of pre-service teachers in both elementary and secondary education routes. 144 students completed mid-term and end-term course delivery preference surveys. Students preferred blended learning followed by face-to-face, and online learning formats respectively. Secondary route students showed an increased preference for blended learning over the term while elementary route students showed increased preferences for both blended and online formats. Students who preferred blended learning or online formats identified similar preference features and likewise students who preferred blended learning or face-to-face formats identified similar preference features. Given the rapid adoption of blended learning, this study serves to extend the knowledge base with respect to the benefits and challenges of course delivery options.
