Traditionally, instructor followed specific instructional materials and credit hours to teach course content, it is difficult to have a good quality of interaction and learning support within limit time and inactive learning environment. In this paper, author introduced a blending elearning support system which integrate synchronous and asynchronous learning platform that increase level of interaction, instructional time, and extra learning support database.Blending learning supportive e-learning system could improve teaching and learning effectiveness, in this research, author adopt blending e-learning support system which including asynchronous e-learning platform, asynchronous instructional video, and synchronous two way video/audio(JOINNET system). The researcher also conducted a surveyed study to examine students' attitude toward blending learning support system; the research result will contribute future learning support system development and application.
