Abstract: In recent times, teaching and learning methods have a direct impact on students’ learning experiences. Blended learning is a combination of face-to-face and online delivery methods which influences students’ perceptions on the learning environments to a great extent. Learning analytics is a growing trend at all levels of education. The objective of the paper is to examine the student’s experiences in blended learning environments. Relevant data has been collected from undergraduate and postgraduate students who are exposed to a blended learning environment while learning programming subjects. Learning analytics has been applied on the collected data. It can be inferred from the results that the blended learning approach is more beneficial for students who are skilled in using certain computer programs and applications. The study results also provide new insights into the student preferences for learning in such knowledge sharing collaborative environments.
