The BMI model is a kind of blended learning model which mixes face-to-face learning in the classroom with online learning which uses mobile devices such as mobile phones and tablets. This article based on the result of the first step of the research and development (R & D) which used Borg and Gall procedures. The accessibility of the BMI model was studied from three aspects: (1) ownership of mobile devices by lecturers, (2) ownership of mobile devices by students and 3) the availability of online facilities owned by universities. While the acceptability of the model was measured by using the perception scale which is consisted of four components: (1) the knowledge, (2) the practical value, (3) the interest value, and (4) the difficulties of lecturers and students about BMI model. This research was conducted using a survey method with 100 respondents. This research found out that the accessibility and acceptability of the BMI model are very good. So the possibility of using the BMI model as one of the alternative learning models at UNP in the future is very possible.
