Blended learning emphasizes the role of computer‐based technologies in learning how to develop writing skills. Through BL, learners not only control the learning speed, but also do not suffer from the time restrictions of classroom interaction. Teaching and learning take place in both on-campus and online setting and various ways are offered to communicate with each other, either synchronously or asynchronously. Compared to paper teaching documents, the electronic resources are easier for the teachers to keep in order. On the other hand, blended learning leaves a significant role for students’ classroom learning. The effect of BL in developing writing skills has been done through a half-year empirical study. Over the period of half a year, the students’ writing skills have been tracked through interviews, learning contracts and teacher observations. The empirical application illustrates the features and advantages of BL approach.
