The purpose of this study is to explore the current status of blended learning in Taiwan and to probe into the benefits and obstacles of utilizing blended learning. 112 participants who work in various types of organizations, including government, business, and non-profit organizations were studied. The results reveal that even though blended learning has been disseminated in workplace learning in Taiwan, it is not as widely accepted as in other countries. Based on these results, we recommend additional professional development for design and evaluation of blended learning for practitioners in Taiwan. Future research about implementing blended learning in mid- or small-sized organizations is critical in Taiwanese situation.
