Special Education, Foundations and Technology


College of Education




This study examined the perceptions of parents and students enrolled in their first blended learning class. Online surveys at the end of the experience were administered. Both the students and parents were initially excited about the experience, but the parents had some reservations about their childs ability to perform. Students admitted to falling behind in the course, but noted that the process served as a good learning experience for the future. Both parents and students complained about the lack of communication from the teachers of the course. Overall, the parents and students were grateful for the experience, and hoped that the course (which was a two-year course) would continue to be offered in a blended format in the future.
