Web-based instruction is the latest development of distance education, which has become an extremely important part of instructional technology. Web-based instruction has commonly adopted by universities and schools to deliver courses on line. Challenged by this advanced instructional technology, teachers will ask what we should know about it. The answer is that he or she should be knowledgeable of this advanced delivery method. He or she must be a life-long learner and be willing to face the challenge of being accountable for student's learning achievement. To obtain an effective web-based instruction, specific and clear instructional objectives are critical keys, strategic instructional time management and flexible collaborative learning environment lay down the foundation, and multiple means of evaluation guarantee the high quality of instruction and successful learning.
