Abstract: As a fastest growing branch of distance education, Web-based learning is attracting more and more people. Interaction is an important factor that affects the learning process. It not only affects the learning effectiveness, but also the learner's motivation. To investigate the learner's motivational perspective of web-based learning materials, a posttest-only experiment was performed. The results from the experiment showed that college students who went through web-based learning materials implemented with elaborated immediate feedback outperformed those who learned the material through the regular website in the IMMS test. The interview data also supported the above conclusion.
