Abstract: The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic across the world has disrupted the education process. Most educational institutions have closed and shifted from traditional classroom instruction to online learning platforms to protect students from viral exposures. Students’ satisfaction with online courses is considered a significant factor in predicting the effectiveness and success of online learning. The resulting wide use of online learning calls for an exploration of the factors influencing student’s satisfaction with this mode of learning. The study aimed to explore factors influencing students’ satisfaction with online learning via Blackboard in a physics course at King Saud University. The Course Experience Questionnaire CEQ (Ginns & Ellis, 2007) was applied to explore the satisfaction of 334 undergraduate first year Health Colleges students. The results revealed that there was a positive strong correlation coefficient between students’ satisfaction with online learning of the physics course and all the proposed factors, namely online teaching quality, online resources quality, online appropriate workload, and online students’ interaction, and all of these coefficients were also statistically significant at the 0.01 level. These results show that all the proposed factors significantly, positively, and strongly influenced the students’ satisfaction with online learning of the physics course.
