The global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has turned a new exercise Ape-like On-the-spot Super Slow Jogging that was originally taking place in the physical world into an online mode. In order to understand the characteristics, and steps and effectiveness of the Jogging, this study adopts a mixed-method methodology to analyze the effectiveness of MOOCs like course on YouTube and the two-way Line based community to assist online practice learning. The research subjects are 33 participants who completed the 100-day foundation building program within six months. The results of the quantitative and qualitative cross-comparison analysis show that this group of participants could achieve physical and mental improvement through technology-mediated blended learning in the midst of the pandemic. We hope the emerging blended learning method will reduce the burden of long-term health care in an aging society in Taiwan and improve the quality of life as well in the future.
