The purpose of this study is to examine the participants` perspectives on online and blended learning, and how two different learning methods can benefit participants` active involvement in offline classes. 81 university students enrolled in general English classes participated in the study. These particular classes were taught with a popular English reading textbook. Specially designed online practice site included additional readings with various types of activities and exercises which were provided in order to enhance students` ability in English. In the study, two different learning methods, previewing and reviewing were adopted for both classes to determine which learning method can be more beneficial in helping them participate and engage more in offline classes. For the measurement, three questionnaires were administered and records of online exercises were presented to demonstrate students` learning process throughout the semester. The results indicated that the participants were not keen on adopting online learning at the beginning of the semester, but gradually, they were quite satisfied with the blended learning. Regarding the two learning methods, there were mixed results. Pedagogical implications of implementing more effective blended learning methods and the future research are discussed.
