Abstract—This quasi-experimental study investigated the effects of blended and traditional learning in multimedia courses for undergraduate students in Indonesia. The blended group (N=41) was taught using a combination of lectures and online activities, while the control group (N=41) experienced a face-to-face lesson. Both groups received the same multimedia materials during four-week sessions. The findings showed that students learning in blended mode achieved better scores than their counterparts. They also participated in discussion sessions more actively. This study also revealed that in Multimedia courses student achievement has a positive correlation with student activities. Students perceived that the implementation of this blended learning was good.
