Abstract: Although online learning has been extensively researched, especially during the COVID-19, there is still not much research that addresses online learning with regard to social cognitive theory. Learning online is affected by the learner's ability to learn or believe that they can learn (self-efficacy). Critical to learning are the environmental factors that regulate learning digital spaces. However, learners now can control, manipulate, and transform their digital learning environments to fit their learning personalities (environment control). Behavioral factors culminate in the learners' abilities to transform their digital learning space, forging an effective personal learning path within the constructs and confines of the digital learning space provided for them (expectation outcome). This study highlights these crucial aspects of the learning process experienced by the students forced to turn to online learning modalities.
