 Many technological innovations have appeared in recent times. E-Learning has become popular in Higher Education as one of the most efficient ways in the whole world, especially Iraq, during the time of Covid-19. The aim of this research is to investigate the effect of Blended Learning upon the students’ products of the design of interior space by answering the following questions: What is the appropriate learning process in subject of Interior Design? How can Blended Learning enhance the level of students’ products of the design of interior space?

In this paper, we used the descriptive approach and quantitative method. The data was collected by: Reviewing the literature of both learning styles in Higher Education which are the Electronic and Traditional learning of designing interior space. Studying cases of Real Classroom/Traditional one, Virtual Classroom/Google Classroom and the blending of them to study the design of interior space. This study covered the academic years (2019-2021) and involved (115) students in the Fourth Stage, Department of Architectural Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Baghdad/Iraq. The Checklist on Google Form was used and then the data was analyzed through (SPSS) program.

The result of the analysis is shown the important of the curriculum such as achieving inclusiveness of the vocabulary of the language of internal spaces; increased the ability of criticize and analysis for better understand of the language of internal spaces. Additional to technological process such as exaggeration in the relationship between the vocabularies of internal spaces, for example, the relationship of colour to light; flexibility to meet the needs of the language of internal spaces. In other side the analysis illustrates the important of the skill through: capacity training in using the hardware and applications of the internal space design programs; and mastering and flexibility in implementing educational programs that help in preparing the design of interior spaces, for example, using programs to show colour, light, and texture. Besides, the time and speed such as understand programs related to designing elements of interior spaces; and time freedom commitment such as application time.

Therefore, this study concludes that the integrated Face to face Learning and E-Learning has significant effect on the student products for better understanding of Architectural Studies generally and the design of interior space specially.
