dc.description.abstract Blended Learning is an amalgamation of face-to-face and e-learning. MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), a popular e-learning source of rich quality content produced by best instructors are freely available to learners globally. However, MOOCs suff er from high attrition rate. Hence, to utilize the available resources efficiently, SPOCs (Small Private Online Courses) came into existence. SPOCs combine the student centered resources with instructor centered traditional classrooms. However, SPOCs still require self motivated students. To explore the potential of SPOC, we offered a university course as modified SPOC and applied techniques of active learning in classroom. We study the impact of the course on students' learning by conducting surveys and monitoring their progress throughout the course duration. Our results show online resources, specifically videos, can be used successfully to enhance learning in traditional classrooms. Our results also depict marks as prime motivating factor for students' efforts. en_US
