The purpose of this research is to determine whether online self-regulated learning skills differentiate student attitudes towards the internet and web-based education in web-based learning environments. Following survey method of research, the results were presented in descriptive manner. 169 university students participated in the study group. The data of this research were collected by using the Online Self-Regulated Learning Scale (α=0.94), Attitudes toward the Internet Scale (α=0.77), Web-Based Learning Attitude Scale (α=0.86) and Computer Attitude Scale (α=0.97). Percentage, frequency, arithmetic average, t and the Pearson’s r correlation statistics were employed on the collected data. The results suggested three major findings (1) online self-regulated learning skill levels affect attitudes of students towards the internet, (2) online self-regulated learning skill levels differentiate student attitudes towards web-based education in terms of the factor of the “Effectiveness of Web-Based Instruction”, and (3) online self-regulated learning skill levels differentiate attitudes of students towards computer.
