Abstract:Web-based training is popular around the world, where a large number of people can study at the same time through the Internet anytime and anywhere. The contents of courseware are presented to learners using multimedia such as text, diagrams, images, animation, music, and videos. They can check the results of their study by themselves because the score is displayed after questions are answered. For example, Moodle is used as an online infection prevention and control program for medical students. A Web-based e-Learning platform for physical education provides sports related courseware which includes physical motions, exercise rules and first-aid treatment. The courseware is represented using digital multimedia materials which include video, 2D animation and 3D virtual reality. Autonomous learning plays an important role in raising students’ learning effect and innovation ability. W. Song, et al. developed a system that consists of a management system, a learning system, a homework system and an interactive answering system. Semantic Web technology in e-Learning offers various semantic-based services to the students and the instructors. Students can perform semantic querying for learning materials.
