Cardiorespiratory fitness is the ability to maintain moderate or high-intensity efforts for In light of the global Covid pandemic, educational institutions worldwide have shifted to online modalities, presenting both opportunities and challenges. This study offers an in-depth examination of the online learning readiness among students at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Physical Education and Sports in Vietnam. Drawing from comprehensive data, we assess critical factors determining successful online learning experiences. These factors include the availability and adequacy of students' technological equipment, their personal internet access quality and reliability, the specific online learning intentions and motivations of the 14th intake students, and the hurdles they encountered when interfacing with the learning management system. Additionally, the research sheds light on potential pedagogical adjustments and infrastructural enhancements that can be made to streamline the transition. By discerning the precise state of online learning preparedness and the challenges faced, this research not only gauges the current state of affairs but also provides actionable insights aimed at optimizing the effectiveness of digital instruction at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Physical Education and Sports.
