Abstract

Today, digital transformation is changing how we work and learn. During the Covid-19 pandemic that resulted in the disruption to global education, the educators and students face challenges on the ongoing e-learning system. Besides the physical, psychological, and emotional challenges, both teachers and students are more engaging with the technology. Reflecting on the Covid-19 pandemic challenges to our education system, should the education post-pandemic Covid-19 transform from face-to-face to online learning or an alternative learning system that is suitable for education stakeholders? According to several studies during the new normal of Covid-19 students, preference for blended learning system are increasing significantly. Blended learning has the potential to be studied by rethinking the implementation of the education system and the concept of instructional delivery, place, time, and how various parties benefit from this system. By integrating new forms of online instruction, learning management systems, and richer device experiences, blended learning can enable more dynamic and rich learning experiences. For the researcher as language teachers, changes in the field of teaching English to technology-savvy students have eliminated several unnecessary costs, such as the production of expensive textbooks which are now being replaced by electronic books. Another advantage is that teaching and learning are carried out remotely and students can access interactive and creative learning media. Blended forms of distance education and learning have advantages in teaching English.
