Degang LAI


Network-based distance training of teachers has been carried out more extensively. The online participation of learner in distance training has a direct impact on the effects of the training. This paper studies the factors affecting the online participation of learners in teachers distance training. The paper adopts Likert’s five scaling method to conduct the investigation. We randomly selected 747 teachers who participate in online distance training to attend the investigation. They come from different areas and teach different disciplines. The results show that: (a) High-quality educational resources can promote learners to participate in courses; (b) Timely feedback from teachers, experts or assistants has a positive impact on learners’ participation; (c) The easy use of online course platform has a positive impact on learners’ participation; (d) Learning interest has a positive impact on the level of learning participation; (e) To obtain the credit or certificate has no positive impact on learning participation.
