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.
