The focus of this paper is on designing metacognitive maps in web-based learning environments. A metacognitive map is designed to enhance metacognition skills and navigation, and is a combination of two maps: 1) a global map, which can outline the structure of the entire learning content so that learners can plan their learning activities, and 2) a local tracking map, which can support learners by allowing them to check their previous learning activities and judge their future learning progress This paper describes a specific interface for a metacognitive map.
