This study is to investigate the differences between students’ conceptions of learning management in traditional instruction and web-based learning environment. The Conceptions of Learning Management Inventory (COLM) was administered to 259 Taiwan college students who majored in business administration. The COLM had six factors (categories), including learning management as memorizing, as testing, as applying, as gaining higher status, as understanding, and as seeing in a new way. These categories are considered as in a hierarchical order, from lower-level to higher level. Results suggested that students agree more with the “seeing in new way” category when learning management in the web-based environment, while they showed stronger acknowledgement toward the conceptions of “memorizing,” “testing,” “gaining higher status,” and “applying” categories when learning management via traditional instruction. It is suggested that web-based instruction can promote students’ higher-level conceptions of learning management.
