AB  - Objectives: To implement and evaluate the effectiveness of a 10-module blended
      learning course on tuberculosis diagnosis for Ethiopian health care
      professionals. Methods: This implementation science research was conducted within
      the routine in-service training for health care professionals in Ethiopia. A
      combined web-based and face-to-face acid-fast bacilli microscopy course was
      designed and its applicability studied after 6 weeks of enrollment of 108 medical
      laboratory professionals. A survey was conducted to capture participants'
      feedback on the course. Results: Of 108 participants enrolled, 81 attended and 73
      (90%) completed the course; 72 (94%) had no experience taking online courses.
      Mean percentages of quizzes, assignments/exercises, and hands-on scores were 88%,
      70%, and 95%, respectively. No significant differences were found in scores
      between participants from public, private, and nongovernmental health facilities 
      ( P = .386) or between higher and lower level facilities ( P = .533).
      Participants' overall satisfaction with the course was 88%. Conclusions: Blended 
      learning was an effective pedagogic approach for this category of professionals
      because of the crucial need for hands-on training for practicing and translating 
      knowledge into skills. This approach also had the advantages of keeping the costs
      of the entire course low and reaching a greater number of participants, all
      without significant disruption of work schedules.
