Self-efficacy for Self-regulated Learning and Chinese Students’ Intention to Use Online Learning in COVID-19: A Moderated Mediation Model

Yajuan Cui

Abstract—Self-efficacy for self-regulated learning (SESRL) is a protective factor for academic performance. However, there are few studies have explored its impact on online learning during the Covid-19. This study investigated (a) the mediating roles of perceived usefulness (PU) and perceived ease of use (PEOU) in the relationship between SESRL and use intention (UI) and (b) the moderating role of gender in the indirect relationship between SESRL and UI. Four hundred Chinese college students entered this study and completed the measurements of SESRL, PEOU, PU and UI. The results showed that SESRL, PEOU, PU and UI were positively correlated with each other. Mediating analysis showed that PEOU and PU mediated the relationship between SESRL and UI. By comparison, the single mediating effect of PEOU was stronger than the single mediating effect of PU and the multiple mediation of them together, which showed the robust effect of PEOU. Moderation analysis showed that the effects of SESRL on PU and PEOU in females were stronger than in males. A high level of SESRL is more conducive to improving the PU and PEOU of female students, which further influenced their intention to use online learning.

Index Terms—Self-efficacy for self-regulated learning, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, use intention.
