This paper is a research to investigate the growth of Internet which will give rise to new adventure of teaching and learning strategies in the decade to come. A series of more recent education approaches that come into play will be examined by addressing their advantages versus shortcomings to identifying why they have come to contribute the collaborative study method and how they are taking shape in the new education trend. The principle of "Collaborative Study" and how it fits appropriately and closely into the modern network media revolution will be demonstrated and explained. Virtual Learning and developing highly effective human cognition techniques through investigative problem solving, thinking and creativity are the major components that will assist the success of Collaborative Study and in fact new ideas in education. This research also brings teaching and learning to a higher level by exploring collaborative study and modeling it as the future education template to be deployed countrywide in Taiwan.
