Abstract: The development of Web-based learning leads to a revolution in traditional teaching methods. The rapidly growing demand for e-learning has lead to the development of the first Cyber University in Hong Kong (the Hong Kong CyberU). In this paper, we address the issue of how Web-based instructional development cope with this new style of learning. On the technical side, the cyber mode of learning impose different requirements for conducting tutorials and laboratory sessions. A new platform is required for students to work remotely through the Web. Using a courseware for the Web-based MSc program in e- Commerce, we demonstrate how cyber laboratory sessions can be conducted. Flexibility and mobility are the key features of our courseware developed. The innovative approach to teaching are designed to provide students with an online interactive learning courseware delivered through the Web. After the courses have been delivered, students are evaluated for the performance through written examinations. We formally evaluated the examination results of one of the Hong Kong CyberU course and concluded that the learning effectiveness of the students does not exhibit any noticeable difference from those courses offered in conventional mode. Thus, the Hong Kong CyberU model used in the MSc in e-Commerce program is a successful example of an elearning program that is delivered solely through the Internet.
