|Abstract:||With the recent growth of new information and communication technologies (ICTs), web based course delivery has become a promising alternative for expanding the educational opportunities in the tertiary education. Blended learning -an alternative type of teaching- uses a combination of traditional face-to-face contact with on-line learning. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between students’ attitudes and perceived e-learner satisfaction in a blended course. Participants were thirty two (n=32) undergraduate students, between the ages of 18-23 years old. Sixty-three percent (62.5%) of the students were male and thirty-seven percent (37.5%) were female. For the data collection at the end of this study, students completed a questionnaire with 3 sections. The first section included the students’ demographic/personal data. The second section evaluated students’ attitudes and the third the perceived e-learner satisfaction from the blended learning course. Pearson correlation coefficients were conducted to examine the relationship between students’ attitudes and their satisfaction. The results of the corelational analyses identified a significant positive correlation between perceived e-learner satisfaction and students’ general attitude toward blended learning.|
