Abstract

The structure of analysis used in the study was constructed based on the analytic categories developed by Mioduser (1999). The proclaimed content indicator of the web-based learning for learners with disability was also included in the analysis, which was provided by Research, Development and Evaluation Commission (RDEC) in Taiwan. The analytic categories include the teaching styles, the course content, the form of assessment, the cognitive process, and the style of communication. Two earth science teachers and the researchers independently coded these websites and the inter-coder correlation is over 0.9. Preliminary analysis is reported. It was found that recently the web-based learning environment for earth science education in Taiwan is increasingly taking into account the social interactions. In addition, the form of assessment is also becoming more multidimensional. From the social-constructivist perspective, this evolving trend is believed to be more theoretical sound.
