The study aims to explore the effect of applying an innovative teaching strategy to promote students’ learning achievement. To achieve the objective, students in three classes of the 4-year hotel management program were selected as research subjects. One class was assigned to the experimental group 1 (EG1), which was treated with ‘the creative problem solving (CPS) strategy on web-based cooperative learning (CSCL)’ method; another was assigned to the experimental group 2 (EG2), with ‘the CSCL’ adopted; and the other was assigned to the control group (CG), with ‘the traditional lecturing’ method adopted. After the conducting the quasi-experiment, the collected data were analyzed by quantitative methods. The major results showed that the differences among the three classes reached the significant levels, and the achievement of the EG1 was significantly better than that of the CG.
