Abstract

Research has established that individual student interest has a positive effect on learning and academic achievement. However, little is known about the impact of a blended learning ap-proach on individual student interest and whether combinations of online and face-to-face learning activities significantly enhance student interest. This paper assesses the effect of blended learning on perceived individual student interest, utilizing a blend of online and face-to-face discussions. The study employed a quasi-experimental design consisting of two differ-ent treatment groups, online discussions versus face-to-face discussions. Data were analyzed using the t-test technique. Results from the study suggest that there was no statistical differ-ence in subjects’ perception of interest in both the online and face-to-face discussions. How-ever, from observation, subjects in the online discussions were eager to engage in textual dia-logue and therefore, participated more in the discussions compared to the face-to-face discussions.
