Abstract: Extreme learning explores how people learn or teach with technology in non-traditional or unique ways. Web technology provides immense opportunities for people to learn anywhere, anytime, and from anyone. As a result, learning is often enhanced to some degree and life is changed. But research on how Web-based extreme learning has engaged learners and provided unique opportunities is relatively sparse. Based on a study of over 305 Websites collected by the Extreme Learning research team at Indiana University, these sites were categorized and analyzed on a variety of criteria. High-ranking websites were chosen for more detailed analysis to show how the features displayed at these websites offer experiential, engaging, effective, and enhancing learning experience to encourage learning and empowerment. We also identify possible future research areas related to extreme and nontraditional learning.
