Abstract

This study aims to investigate lecturers' understanding of blended learning and skills in using several platforms for blended learning-based lectures, the effectiveness of the training on blended learning to improve lecturers’ competence, and the impact of the blended-learning lectures on their students’ learning outcomes. A quantitative approach was implemented in this research.  The participants involved 30 lecturers and 67 students of Jabal Ghafur University, selected by purposive sampling. Data were collected through tests and questionnaires and analysed descriptively. The results showed an increase in lecturers’ knowledge and skills in applying blended learning-based lectures. The lecturers’ and students’ responses to blended learning are also positive. This research concluded that the blended learning training in improving lecturer competence was considered effective and impacted their students’ learning outcomes. This research is hoped to be a reference and a model for teaching and learning to be adapted by universities for the blended learning model as a current learning method to support the current curriculum.
