University Students, Online Learning, Satisfaction


During the 2020 epidemic in China, online teaching was promoted, but fewer studies have investigated the learning satisfaction of college students who have been taught online on a large scale for an extended period of time. The factors that affect learning satisfaction mainly include students' basic attributes, learning resources, learning platforms and learning interactions. According to the results of the questionnaire survey, course content, course resources, platform technology, platform design, teacher-student interaction, student-student interaction, and interaction mode are the main factors affecting students' basic attributes. The survey results also showed that course content and interaction mode significantly affect students' learning satisfaction. Based on these findings, teachers should enrich course content to provide students with more practical, rich, and vivid teaching experiences. Additionally, teachers should pay close attention to their communication with students, offer timely guidance to students' learning, and provide feedback to any questions they ask.
