A sample of 100 students was selected to collect data. The sample was randomly selected. The focus of this concept was to determine whether students' attitudes towards online classes were based on their online learning experience. Student’s attitude towards online classes based on their tested experience. The attitudes of the students in the online class were also investigated. Adaptation to classroom and self-study, high cost of online classes, access to electronic exams, a well-designed curriculum, easy Internet access, easy-to-use online classroom visual display, and familiarity with the teacher in a good student experience.
