Following the COVID-19 crisis, practically all university instructors decided to incorporate blended learning by adopting interactive technologies to enhance the teaching-learning process. Vygotsky’s socio-cultural theory, which shaped collaborative learning, is encouraged since it strengthens the activity that contributes to an individual’s growth and enrichment. This study explores how faculty members perceive students collaborating in learning in a blended learning setting using interactive technologies. As a result, a mixed method technique for data collecting was used in this study to investigate how teachers are perceived in a higher education setting. The research was conducted on 100 academics from various public and private universities in Bangladesh. Through a semi-structured interview, data were gathered. Given the different restrictions and limitations, the study’s findings demonstrate that the teachers’ attitude was both positive and negative. The findings support the idea that technology has increased the number of ways to work together on collaborative tasks offering better assurance and access for sharing and communication. However, the teaching-learning process might be aided by adequate training for students and teachers as well as by the availability of authentic resources.
