Blended and online learning environments: motivations, contradictions, and influencing factors
Blended and online learning environments continue to grow, transforming higher education. The motivation behind this study is to explore blended and online learning environments, from the perspective of students, through the lens of Activity Theory (AT). Based on 12 virtual semi-structured interviews with Master's (MSc) students at one University in England, the paper sheds light onto some of the findings with respect to student motivation underlying engagement, as well as tensions and contradictions in the activity system.
