Abstract

With the increasing application of online learning, conflicting findings on this topic have been yielded, especially due to the outbreak of COVID-19. This study seeks to answer these two research questions: (1) Will different formats of online courses (i.e., live or recorded) generate different learning effects (i.e., the extent of students being motivated and their understandings of the course content); and (2) What kinds of students (i.e., big five personality and procrastination) are best fitted in each of these approaches? Eventually, the data of 116 participants (38 males and 78 females) are valid. As revealed by the results, the effect of different online learning approaches on academic performance is not significant. For the live courses, people who think their class participation is high are more likely to obtain better learning effects, whereas those with higher conscientiousness are less likely to achieve good learning results. For the recorded courses, people with higher agreeableness or those who think they have taken the exam seriously and taken the course timely are more likely to get a good learning effect, while outgoing people are less likely to gain a good learning effect. Combined, the results of this study have educational implications. Lastly, some limitations of this study are discussed and future research directions are suggested.
