Due to the increased popularity
of e-learning, the phrase “blended learning” has recaptured
people’s attention. The manner in which blended-learning
classes can be designed to improve learning effectiveness
has become an important issue. This study combines classroom
learning (abbreviated as C) with computer-assisted
programmed instruction (abbreviated as E) to implement C +
E. Based on the principle of programmed instruction,
teaching material for the computer-assisted instruction (CAI)
for a statistics course was produced, and a teaching
experiment was conducted in various statistics courses at a
university of technology. The results indicated that, as
opposed to the “traditional classroom learning,” the blended
learning of “computer-assisted programmed instruction”
increased students’ learning effectiveness.
