Abstract

As college drop outs and dissatisfaction from the school among students on the rise, factors such as student engagement and technology that have potential to reverse this trend have been gaining attention in the research studies. Blended Learning Environments, a combination of online and face to face learning environments, have potential to increase student engagement with the help from technology. However designing such blended learning environments needs information to understand what factors impact student engagement. This study investigates how students’ demographic, motivational and prior ability factors impact student engagement in a blended learning course offered to pre-service computer teachers. Findings indicate that factors impacting student success and engagement in traditional learning environments did not have effect on student engagement in blended learning environment.
