The rapid growth of technology allows tertiary-level education to develop alternative ways of instruction to effectively support student learning. Although a face-to-face class is still powerful, online learning has been advocated as an innovative instructional way to confront constraints such as distance, time, space, and diverse student characteristics. This article introduces a brief overview of online threaded discussion (OTD) in a blended course in physical education teacher education (PETE), and provides insights into how to effectively design, manage, and teach online courses. In particular, contextual information that relates to a specific university, PETE program, course, and students are discussed in this article. Second, the blended model and OTD implemented by the authors are introduced. Finally, the article discusses the blended model's contributions, issues, and strategies, and provides implications for physical educators to improve their online courses in higher education settings.

divides traditional lecture content into smaller bite-sized chunks, as Dinmore ( 2019 ) suggests that 6–12 min is the ideal duration for online asynchronous learning. Furthermore, blended learning principles indicate that session recordings are most effective when they offer clarity about key concepts and

In light of the diverse functions, breadth of

that the online content was more engaging ( Enfield, 2013 ; McLaughlin et al., 2013 ), the self-directed nature of the asynchronous learning requirements was more flexible ( Forsey, Low, & Glance, 2013 ; Hao, 2016 ), and the flipped learning approach promoted autonomy ( Yeung & O'Malley, 2014

Its planned scope and sequence are similar to the original version of the course: following several weeks of synchronous and/or asynchronous learning through class meetings and assignments, PPETs begin their field

via both synchronous and asynchronous learning activities (e.g.,  Junco, Heiberger, & Loken, 2011 ; McCarthy, 2010 ; Nowell, 2014 ). However, such apparent benefits from social media use are accompanied by both predictable and unanticipated educational obstacles and consequences. Developments around

experts as part of a student-designed games unit ( Hastie et al., 2010 ). Another used a virtual hub called Edmodo as a platform for asynchronous learning in a different game-design unit ( Andre & Hastie, 2018 ). The use of information websites for learning was examined in two studies ( Lazerte & Lathrop
