Blended courses or hybrid courses have gained popularity over the years because of their
flexibility and convenience. Technology use in the online component of the blended/hybrid
courses is another influence particularly to the younger generation of learners who enjoy
learning interactively in a virtual environment. However, depending on the subject matter
and the type of learners, traditional classroom learning may be preferred to hybrid
learning. This study looks at student perceptions of the face‐to‐face component and the
online component in a hybrid mathematics course. Analysis shows that the students in this
study preferred the face‐to‐face learning mode. In particular, they are more comfortable
interacting with their peers and the instructor in the face‐to‐face learning mode and they
find the face‐to‐face instruction enables them to learn and understand the mathematics
concepts better. Future study will look into gathering qualitative type of responses to
students’ preference of the learning modes.
