This paper demonstrates a web-based learning system with tracking capability to facilitate both teaching and learning. The system can be used to deliver distance education courses or served as complementary supporting tool in regular course teaching. The instructors use such system to deliver lectures, labs, and projects on line, and also record students' records such as exam scores and attendances. The students use this system to access course materials and personal profiles. In addition to the conventional features provided, the system also has the capability to keep tracking the online access history. These records provide an excellent source for online browsing history analysis. We use the analysis to improve the overall course design and build students' profiles accordingly. By personalizing their records, students can keep tracking their own progress and compare their own records with the whole class performance.
