Various online learning models were applied during the COVID-19 pandemic, ranging from simply using communication applications, to those using learning systems or a combination of both. The majority think that online learning must be done face-to-face, even though online. In each meeting, it is usually equipped with material sharing, exercises or even video tutorials. Students have extensive opportunities to communicate with lecturers, either during scheduled meetings or outside of schedules. Although the learning process will be returned to normal due to the end of the pandemic, the online learning experience for two years has given a distinct impression to students and lecturers. There is a desire to maintain it as a distraction from classroom learning. Blended learning, namely the learning process in the classroom interspersed with online learning is the right choice. The study program and lecturers must jointly make an agreement to determine the material and portion size between offline and online learning, as well as monitor and evaluate its implementation. The quality of the output must be able to be maintained or even improved through this blended learning process.
