Abstract—The study explored the learning engagement of
BYOD (Bring your own device) in a blended-learning classroom.
In a blended learning environment, 51 undergraduates of the
same class participated in two core courses. In Course A, as the
experimental group, they brought their own devices to facilitate
their learning, whereas in Course B, as the control group, they
did not. The study compared the undergraduates' engagement
in the two courses. The results of the learning behavior analysis
on the learning platform system and interviews after the
16-week courses showed that BYOD in the classroom improved
the undergraduates' engagement in the blended learning
classroom. Finally, the study is suggested that instructors and
researchers could design learning activities in the classroom
with BYOD support to improve undergraduates' engagement.
Index Terms—Blended learning, undergraduate, bring your own device (BYOD), learning engagement.
