—Blended-learning approaches are now widely used
in Thai education. Most of schools and universities have
attempted to use the innovative learning approach to interact
with students as well as to deliver education resources to them.
E-learning, for instance, has been commonly combined with
traditional classroom setting. One of the most popular
e-learning techniques that has been adopted in Thai education
is course management system (CMS).Recently, course
management system plays the important role for students who
require a time schedule flexibility. This has also created more
chances for student interactions with teachers as well as peers
through online discussion site. Furthermore, using CMS allows
students to access the contents anytime from inside and outside
the classroom.This study analyses the perspective of students
and teachers on CMS; discusses benefits and challenges of
blended-learning approach; recommendshow to
effectivelyadapt traditional classroom setting with
blended-learning.The results illustrated positively perspective
from both students and teachers. However, active learning
environment and responsibility of students should be enhanced
when adapting blended-learning approach.
