The 33-item questionnaire included 6 domins: interaction (5 questions :), content (6 questions), individual learning (5 questions), information and attendance (3 questions), technology (7 questions) and evaluation (7 questions). The questions were scored on a six-point Likert scale from (1) undesirable to high (6). SPSS software version 26 and linear multiple regression model were used to analyze the data.

(P =0.29) and age (p = 0.15) did not affect the total score.
