In 2020, the unexpected outbreak of COVID-19 has brought a new challenge to education and provided a revolutionary opportunity to integrate ideas for building an information society. Meanwhile, the new learning mode of home-based online learning has imposed new requirements on university students; on the other hand, the question of how to improve the learning effect has also led to new thinking for teachers. On this basis, this paper conducts in-depth exploration from the perspective of students’ self-efficacy, extending the four dimensions of online learning: a sense of effort, a sense of control, a sense of participation, and a sense of environment. Following this, we analyze and study the five factors of learning attitude, learning strategy, learning interaction, learning evaluation, and learning environment. At the end of the study, four strategies are given to improve the effectiveness of learning. First, they stimulate students’ sense of independent and autonomous learning under a sense of effort. Second, students’ self-management ability is cultivated under a sense of control. Third, each student is given the opportunity to better reflect the characteristics of diversity in the process of participating in interactive learning. Fourth, the great advantage of intelligence in online classrooms is demonstrated in the existing teaching environment.
