The study compares the learning satisfaction of two student groups, one takes the fully online course–Introduction to Internet of Things, and the other takes the small private online course (SPOC). In the research framework, learning satisfaction is the dependent variable, and learning engagement, learning presence, video perception, platform perception, and design perception are independent variables. This work adopts online questionnaire survey to collect data from the two student groups. As to research method, Multiple Regression Analysis (MRA) is utilized to test proposed research framework. The results of MRA show that platform perception generates students’ learning satisfaction for SPOC, while video perception and design perception generate students’ learning satisfaction for fully online course. This empirical study elucidates the factors influence learner’s satisfaction and contributes to theory and practice in the domains of online courses.
