Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate Taiwan university students’ experience, confidence and preference of online academic help seeking (OAHS) and their web-based learning self-efficacy (WLSE). Two instruments, OAHS questionnaire (included information searching, formal and informal query scales) and WLSE (included general and functional scales) questionnaire, were developed and distributed to 300 university students. Each OAHS questionnaire item was designed to assess students’ intentional behaviors in three dimensions which were experience, confidence and preference, respectively. Among all respondents, there were 124 students who had taken web-based courses at least one time being asked to respond to WLSE questionnaire. The results showed that the university students’ confidence was higher than their experience and preference of OAHS in general. The students who had higher general WLSE would have more experience and preference of formal and informal query for OAHS.Finally, the male and female students had significant differences on OAHS scales but not on WLSE scales.
