Abstract—The advancement in educational technology precipitated by the dissemination of Internet in recent years has a potential to improve the quality of education by encouraging participation and collaboration between instructors and students. Educational institutions use information and communication technology (ICT) as a tool for teaching and learning in a number of ways including but not limited to Internet-based content delivery and visualization. This research involves the development and evaluation of blended learning courses at University of Sam Ratulangi (UNSRAT), Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. The current work was aimed to redesign two courses of the existing curriculum based on the ADDIE instructional design model to support student-centered learning and develop e-learning materials. One of the courses was then delivered as two separate classes, the first class was delivered through conventional learning and the second class was delivered by blended learning. These were done to obtain a comprehensive view of students' preferences for learning model. Whereas the other course was entirely delivered by blended learning to acquire an evaluation of students' experience in this learning model. In this paper, the development of the courses based on the instructional design are described. From the questionnaire and examination results, students' achievements both for conventional learning and blended learning are evaluated. The outcome of the research can be seen as a description of students' experience and can offer recommendation on how to design e-learning based courses under the circumstances at UNSRAT.
