AbstractThis empirical research employed a web-based learning platform called The VICAS System to investigate the relationships of subjects' participation in an e-learning discussion forum with a number of independent variables, including a subject's sex, GPA, computer self-efficacy, and learning motivation. Based upon a college sample of 126, the results of a regression analysis could surprise many researchers and educational practitioners. This is because the level of subjects' participation in the e-learning process could only be predicted by a student's academic performance, that is, his or her GPA. Other variables that were commonly regarded as important were all absent in the model.
