A Blended Learning Course in Engineering Materials: Course Design and Analysis


"Engineering Material II" is a Year 3 undergraduate major elective course that offers fundamental training to students who are interested in pursuing a career in materials-related fields or advanced study programs. Over the past three years during pandemic, this course has been taught in both real-time online mode and mixed mode, which combines online and face-to-face elements. Taking into account the positive feedback from students regarding the online components and the benefits of face-to-face interactions, we have successfully integrated and transformed this course into a blended learning mode. This paper addresses the challenges encountered during the conversion process and outlines our approach to designing a cohesive blended learning course. We aimed to ensure a seamless transition between online and face-to-face modules while truly achieving a blended learning experience. Additionally, the paper evaluates students' engagement with a video analytics tool, providing insights into their involvement throughout the course.
