Abstract

This study was conducted to see the attitudes of students toward web-based learning environment in General Physics course. The study was conducted in a public university in Kyrgyzstan in 2018. 144 students from the faculty of Science and Engineering participated in the study. Online questionnaire was completed online at the end of the spring semester 2017-2018. In addition, in-depth interviews with 12 students were conducted. Results showed that students’ success in online Physics course depends on gender and academic major of students. Factors, that were defined in this study: advantages over traditional methods, and fear of using online course were also found to be significant for students’ success in completing online Physics course while ease of use was found to be non-significant. In interviews with students, 2 major points were highlighted, namely, lack of online education experience among students and internet connection problems.
