Abstract
This report presents the report of the blended learning implementation at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Malaysia. The study assessed the effectiveness of blended learning (BL) for students’ learning performance and their perceptions about BL. In addition, it examined the relationship between online activities and final scores. Students’ online activities were tracked and collected from the SmartUMS learning management system (LMS). The results of the learning performance assessment showed a significant difference between the students’ outcomes in the blended and non-blended courses. In addition, four LMS variables were identified as predictors for the final scores: login frequency, total posts, online sessions and total downloads. Students’ overall perception of BL was very positive, and they noted that BL provided them with the flexibility to access the courses anywhere and anytime.
