The purpose of this study was to explore and identify factors that predict education and nursing students’ preference for online and face-to-face learning and to explore differences between education and nursing, and undergraduate and graduate students in terms of preference for online and face-to-face learning. Findings suggest that students who prefer online learning tend to value the flexibility that online learning is perceived to offer, while students who prefer face-to-face learning tend to value the connection that face-to-face learning is perceived to emphasize.
