Purpose: Online education is destined to become the development trend of education due to the rise of the COVID-19 epidemic. Therefore, this study aims to determine influencing factors of learning satisfaction of undergraduate students, majoring in online art education in public colleges in Sichuan Province, China. A conceptual framework proposes the causal relationship between system quality, information quality, service quality, perceived usability, perceived ease of use, self-efficacy, and learning satisfaction. Research design, data, and methodology: 494 undergraduates were surveyed as part of the study using a project questionnaire using both online and offline approaches. The sampling methods are judgmental sampling, stratified random and convenience sampling. In order to quantify the causal link and conduct a hypothesis test between the variables, the researcher utilized confirmatory factor analysis and a structural equation model. Results: The results demonstrate that all hypotheses are supported. Furthermore, self-efficacy has the strongest significant effect on perceived ease of use. Conclusion: This research can guide the relevant departments of art majors in public universities in Sichuan Province to integrate online learning and increase the effectiveness of that learning by enhancing students’ performance.
