Abstract

The present study seeks to examine gender differences of the first-time online students with respect to flexible thinking and mindset and to investigate the impacts of flexible thinking, mindset, and self-efficacy in learning on the first-time online students’ online learning engagement. The findings suggested that both female and male first-time online learners were capable to adapt to changes in learning situations and accept the utilizations of new technologies. Moreover, an individual who has a growth mindset appeared to be more likely to participate in all kind of learning situations and to put more effort in dealing with challenges.
