Blended learning based on lecture videos and face-to-face teaching provides good conditions for students as far as availability of teaching and participation in education are concerned. Use of lecture videos in higher education is already quite common. Lecture videos are well suited for increasing the flexibility in teaching as they provide a diversity of opportunities to participate in education regardless of time and place. This paper examines the motivation for the use of blended learning and looks at its effects on students' learning outcomes in master's studies in information technology. According to the results obtained, the main motivation for the use of videos is to compensate for occasional absences. The results indicate that the way students participate in lectures also has its effects on participation activity. Those students who combine both lecture videos and face-to-face education in their participation modes participate more actively in lectures and thus also are the most successful in completing the courses.
