This study investigates how the level and the type of interaction impacts upon the motivation, satisfaction and the quality of student learning in three different learning groups: face-to-face, synchronous (real-time) e-learning and asynchronous (time-delayed) e-learning groups. The data used in the present study was collected when second year university students participated in a science course. The face-to-face group was in a traditional classroom environment with the instructor, the synchronous online group used a new interactive real-time computer program to take part in the lessons and the asynchronous group participated in the course only by watching the streamed videos. The quantitative analysis and the multivariate analysis with LISREL analysis were used. The findings show, that there are differences in how students perceive interaction, motivation, and satisfaction in different learning groups, but not in success in final exams and in critical thinking ability.
