Jian Li


The use of network platform to carry out general education courses has become a more common way in China's general education. In the Internet era, how to effectively use network platform resources, better carry out general education courses, and improve the learning satisfaction of general education is an important issue that needs to be solved.Based on previous studies, this study takes three dimensions of self-efficacy, teacher guidance and curriculum quality as factors affecting learning satisfaction, and introduces learning engagement as a mediating variable. Using the method of empirical research, this paper adopts convenient sampling to select some students from 10 universities in Guangxi which offer online courses of general education.Through the sample data, it is verified that self-efficacy, teacher guidance and course quality have significant positive effects on learning satisfaction. Learning engagement has a partial mediating effect.
