Self-efficacy, a popular theme that is vital to influence learning efficiency. While online learning is another hot issue especially when the COVID-19 appeared. Therefore, understanding the distinction of self-efficacy on online education in different cultures and improving it has become important. In this review, self-efficacy’s impacts on online learning efficiency in different cultures became the review’s focus. There were different levels of autonomy related to making decisions in various cultures. And inner motivation seemed to be distinguished by cultural characteristics. Self-efficacy, possibly related to autonomy and motivation, seemed different in distinctive cultures during online courses as well. And self-regulation, a capability to achieve goals, was closely related to self-efficacy. So more research was referenced to show how to improve self-efficacy through intervening self-regulation. This review was mainly concentrated on applying scaffolding and training student’s self-management, which probably influence the self-regulation from the western practices. In the current study, there were generally cross-sectional studies on self-efficacy, which can only focus on the fixed phase of participants’ learning conditions. What’s more, existing research was normally concentrated on the direct influence of self-efficacy that can only learn the difference of online learning outcomes on intrinsic factors. For further studies, they should do more intervention studies on self-efficacy in Eastern culture. Furthermore, the research on self-efficacy needs to conduct more longitudinal studies to observe changes of self-efficacy’ impacts in the same subject. Moreover, adding more investigation on the outside environment’s effects is needed.
