A hybrid approach which is a mix of online, technology based and class room teaching is the best strategy for imparting knowledge. The current study aims at understanding the effect of blended learning environment on student performance along with the mediating role of student engagement.

The results from the study reflect that blended learning has a positive impact on student performance. The blended learning enhances the engagement level of the students and thus the performance of the students also increases.
