Abstract:During the past few years the number of courses offered online has greatly increased as technology has made delivery of such courses more feasible. Blended learning environment amalgamates the advantages of distance education with the effective aspects of traditional education. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of blended learning instruction in terms of students’ satisfaction. Participants were sixty one (n=61) undergraduate students, between the ages from 17-24 years old. Forty-four percentage (44.3%) of the participants were male and fifty-six were female (55.7%). For the data collection at the end of this study, students completed a questionnaire with 2 sections. The first section included the students’ demographic/personal data. The second section evaluated students’ satisfaction about the blended learning course. Students’ satisfaction had been acknowledged as an important factor in order to estimate the effectiveness of a course, especially a blended course. Data analysis revealed that perceived e-learner satisfaction was higher than the average indicating students’ high satisfaction with the overall learning experience.
