Impact of Blended Learning on Engineering Students in Indian Context (Published)

The advancement of information technology results in the phenomenal changes in the wide area of education system. Blended learning is the potential upshot of advanced technology based learning scheme. The use of latest e-learning channels and technologies has started facilitating the teaching learning process. Computers and mobiles are the most widely used e- learning materials in the blended learning education system. The charm of blended learning approach lies in the method of adapting technology aided learning methods apart from the existing conventional learning methods. The negative aspects of traditional learning approach are covered by enhancing the overall learning as well as teaching experience with the use of modern technology. This study focuses on the impact of blended learning on the engineering students in our country. There are certain challenges in blended learning in India but in the current scenario of pandemic outbreak, it has a huge significance in our education system. The challenges which the society of our country is likely to face are due to the students from dissimilar backgrounds and their inflexibility, time unavailability and unawareness of using technology. Blended learning is a varied educational paradigm that offers addressing these challenges. The study proves the impact of blended learning in the engineering students of India that it leads to the improvement in the knowledge of their subject topics as well as the improvement in their overall achievement.

Intercultural Exchanges and Soft Skills Development in the Info-Tech-Enabled EFL Classroom (Published)

The present research study assesses the impact of an ICT-enabled English language environment on students’ intercultural exchanges and soft skills development. The major objective is to see whether an English course content that makes use of blogs, podcasts, and Internet-aided presentations allows intercultural encounters and boosts personal and professional development. The qualitative comments from the endofcourse interview are examined with regard to students’ reflections on their learning experience. Research findings show that the use of ICT-enabled class content does not bring about any considerable changes in students’ cultural practices, but stirs and triggers personal and professional changes (changes in attitudes) and allows learners to develop empowering soft skills, including personal development skills, communication skills, and conflict resolution skills.
