This study investigates the relationship among personal characteristics, CMC behaviours and the perceived positive and negative effects of CMC on learning. Based on the survey on college students, the study finds asynchronous and private CMC usage are correlated more strongly with the positive effects of CMC on learning, and the students who have higher self-efficacy on CMC and open to new experience are more likely to use asynchronous or private CMC. This study makes recommendations for teacher to incorporate CMC into hybrid disciplinary learning and for administer to encourage teachers to use CMC to enhance the teaching and learning.
