Blended Learning in Saudi Arabia – A Review
The aim of this paper is to review the available research studies on blended learning in Saudi Arabia. Blended learning has been adopted in many Saudi higher education institutions. This paper aims to review some of the research studies which have been carried out on blended learning in Saudi Arabia. For this paper, specific search terms were used in the Google Scholar search engine and the results were shortlisted according to the year of publication. From the review of the available studies on the subject, it was clear that even though students in Saudi Arabia are open to technological and ICT innovations, they are not completely ready for the independent learning facet characteristic of blended education. It was also clear that the government of Saudi Arabia is keen on integrating ICT into higher education in the country.
