Abstract
This paper presents a blended learning approach and a study evaluating instruction in a software engineering-related course unit as part of an undergraduate engineering degree program in computing. In the past, the course unit had a lecture-based format. In view of student underachievement and the high course unit dropout rate, a distance learning system was deployed, where students were allowed to choose between a distance learning approach driven by a moderate constructivist instructional model or a blended learning approach. The results of this experience are presented, with the aim of showing the effectiveness of the teaching/learning system deployed compared with the lecture-based system previously in place. The grades earned by students under the new system, following the distance learning and blended learning courses, are compared statistically with the grades attained in earlier years in the traditional face-to-face classroom (lecture-based) learning
