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 drop-out rate, we deployed a distance learning system where students were allowed to choose between distance learning driven by a moderate constructivist instructional model or opt for a blended learning approach. With the aim of showing the effectiveness of the teaching/learning system deployed compared with the lecture-based system previously in place, we present the results of this experience. The grades achieved by students under the new system following the distance learning and blended learning courses and the grades achieved in earlier years in the traditional face-to-face classroom learning (lecture based) are compared statistically
