Abstract

This paper discusses two major obstacles of using web-based resources for teaching and learning from both instructors' and learners' perspectives. It further provides the strategies that address the two obstacles. Web-based resources in this context refer to web-based materials (e.g., web sites, web pages, and links) found on the Internet that are used in classes. They also refer to online tools (e.g., interactive web page, software programs, and simulation tools) that are available on the Internet. Major obstacles of using web-based resources are the quality and the instability of the resources. Strategies that can be adopted to enhance teaching and learning when using these resources are careful selection of the resources based on the course learning objectives, the evaluation of the resources to ensure their quality, and the backups of the critical resources.
