School for All in the EduCities is an innovative project funded by both the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the National Science Council (NSC) of Taiwan. This project aims to challenge the rationale of traditional education--only teachers educate and students learn. We want to explore via a Web Course-offering contest in the EduCities in order to know if anyone who is willing to dedicate to the Web education can teach regardless of the age and professions, if he/she wants to with the assistance of the Information Technology. In this first contest, 290 courses were registered for competition and evaluation at several phases. Consequently 15 outstanding online teachers were selected for award. The purpose of this paper is to document the process of the study and to report the results. Characteristics of the outstanding online teachers, such as age, professions and pedagogical strategies were also identified.
