Abstract: The primary aim of the research was to examine the relationship between online student connectedness, performance proficiency, and online learning continuance intention of the first-time online students and to investigate the extent that connectedness and performance proficiency could predict continuance intention. The results revealed that comfort and facilitation, the subscales of OSCS, had stronger correlation with online learning continuance intention and performance proficiency than the other two subscales, community and interaction and communication. Moreover, the results also indicated that performance proficiency was the strongest predictor of online learning continuance intention, and facilitation followed as the second strongest predictor.
