In this study, author has defined twenty-four essential designs from the ideas of mind tools, transactional distance theory, and ARCS model. Then, author has created a best web site for youth to learn scale (in short, BeYou), with twenty-four questions on a five-point scale. In this pilot, author has recruited a sample of thirty experts, who have won the prize of best web site for youth to learn or managed a famous web site for learning supported by NSC, but there are only eighteen experts returned BeYou to us. BeYou was reduced fifteen unnecessary items according to the magnitude of their factor loading and then found the BeYou mainly consisted of two factors, interactive interface and entertaining interface. In the last, author has conducted a cluster analysis using the factor scores of interactive interface factor and entertaining interface factor. The cluster analysis program was executed and found three distinctive clusters.
