As more online courses become accessible, many professions have adopted web-based learning in training and education. Web-based learning promotes computer-mediated interaction and increased flexibility in the time and space for learning. Within the web-based learning settings, providing students with self-directed learning tasks and analyzing students’ learning strategies are critical. The purpose of this study was to observe students’ use of strategies and their learning outcomes in a web-based learning setting. To promote self-directed learning, group project-based tasks were assigned to encourage students’ interactions with their peers and the instructor. Electronic learning portfolios, including online discussions, projects, and assignments were assessed for further analysis. Strategies used in the web-based learning context were identified.
