Students today expect learning to be linked to the real world and by using active learning strategies we can help students develop those links. Active web-based learning involves the user being engaged in a knowledge-building, skill-building, or attitude-changing task, and being required to meaningfully and overtly interact with instructional content. This brief paper explores the idea of active learning on the web and examines some good examples of web resources that incorporate basic principles of active learning.
