Blended Learning: Electrical Circuits for Non-EE Students


With the advent of technology, the modern world is always changing around us. Our classrooms are becoming diverse with not just diversity of thought but also the diversity of culture, age, and learning styles and pace. Our academic institutes are creating welcoming environments for the students with learning disabilities in addition to the students with physical difficulties. As educators, its our responsibility to utilize the tools of our times to create more dynamic classes by promoting more engagement, better learning experiences and providing different avenues of learning to students with different learning styles. A blended or partially flipped classroom is the step in that direction. This methodology combines the advantages of in-class learning with out of class online learning. The out of class learning involves students preparing content on their own by watching videos and then taking online quizzes. A blended learning approach was adopted for the Electrical Circuits course at Missouri University of Science and Technology. This study presented here presents a comparison of different aspects of the blended learning format to that of a traditional lecture format for this course.
