Abstract: Our life including political, economic, social and cultural factors are all under the influence of World Wide Web. Education is no exception. Web-based education (WBE) is a typical product blended education and Web, whose characteristics such as widely access, low cost but high profit, frequent update and feedback, highly interactive communication, dynamic learning environment all spur its speedy development. Meanwhile, with the rise in the popularity of WBE, the problems such as weak integration of the means, weak interactivity among student, professor and the system, at a loss in "information sea" and 'one-size-fit-all' web-based systems also emerged. Web-accessible system combined Web-based system and conventional learning system may be one way to solve the partial problems. Intelligent tutoring systems may be another. Training and supporting the faculty of WBE and building awareness of students will also contribute to speed up the development of WBE.

Problems of WBE are different from one type of student body to another. With regards to full-time and local attendant students, empirical data describing who may be successful in Web-based learning environments at the community college are scarce.( The Web-based community college student:). The reason is the introduction of new technologies in the real education environment is a difficult problem. For example, the relatively modern and quite common methods of teaching, such as videoconferences or on-line courses (as versions of textbooks) have not been very successful due to their limitations and to the negative facets that they contain, to mention some: weak integration of the means, weak interactivity among student, professor and the system, dominant paradigm of knowledge transmission, separation of the apprentices from the cooperative activities in the learning scenarios. ...read more.


In a word, standardization of the system to all kinds of target students and different learning environments may be the major barriers during the development of WBE.
