Online Learning Cognition as Perceived by Undergraduate Students in China Eastern Province
Keywords:e-learning, recognition, influencing factor, northwest China
Company with global educational reform brought by digital governance and the challenge of COVID-19 pandemic in the year 2020, it is quite necessary to explore learners’ recognition behaviors for on-line learning in the context of locked environment. By investigating on-line learning practices in China eastern provincial regions, the study attempts to disclose the undergraduate students’ perceptions on the issues pertaining to on-line learning and the innate critical factors for individual intention through the selected region of relatively-developed eastern China. A survey design was used for the study, and a close- ended questionnaire with the six point Likert scale was developed regarding the issues over on-line learning practices. The findings indicate that instructor characteristics and teaching resources are the predictors of the perceived usefulness of on-line learning, and perceived usefulness coupled with the joyfulness are the predictors of on-line learning recognition. While statistically significant, perceived adaptability was shown to own the weakest effect for on-line learning recognition among the predictors. All these results are consistent with previous studies in other China regions, proving the universal trait of learners’ perception and individual behavior towards on-line learning. Implications and future research are discussed eventually.
