Abstract: This study examined students’ preferred media in online learning and online technology self-efficacy. One hundred six college students in a mid-size U.S. university responded to a survey. The frequency analysis showed that, overall, students tended to prefer asynchronous media. They preferred recorded online slide presentations with audio to Internet-based live video lectures in two-way video and audio interactions. Online discussion boards and chat groups were less favored than other types of media. Consistent with a past study, regardless of their age, gender, and GPA, the students in this study perceived online lecture notes and assignments to be highly useful. Online technology self-efficacy was correlated with a type of media requiring a relatively higher level of technology skills. The paper presents a summary of the results and discusses their implications of the study.
