As the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for delivering instruction materials increases, the term of e-learning has become widespread. Many educational institutes and universities in Indonesia have tried to adopt the e-learning system as parts of their efforts to foster teaching and learning processes. The quality of student activities can be enhanced through the effective use of e-learning. The Yogyakarta State University (YSU) Indonesia has been implementing the e-learning system called BESMART since 2006. It was developed using the Learning Management Systems of Moodle. The implementation of the e-learning system in some schools and universities in Indonesia has several obstacles such as low bandwidth of internet connection, lacks of teacher’s computer skills, limited numbers of accessing terminals, no supporting policy for implementing e-learning methods and other administrative stuff. The problems could be solved by the implementation of a blended learning. This paper will discuss about the integration of ICT into teaching and learning process by the implementation of blended learning in order to increase the quality of student learning activities at the YSU Indonesia. The blended learning is a combination of e-learning and traditional classrooms. It can be the accommodation of the best elements of e-learning contents consisting of items like simulations, virtual laboratory, and online discussions into a face-to-face learning. The student activities that can be enhanced by the effective use of blended learning include online collaboration and discussion, online quizzes and assignments, online inquiry and explorations, as well as any individual activities such as e-reflections, e-journal, blogs, e-portfolios. Other conventional face-to-face activities can still be incorporated in the blended learning such as tutorials, practicum, project work and laboratory work.
