The Web, today, is a firmly established (virtual) reality. A few years after its impressive break through, from limited professional circles to everybody's working and social life, the Web constitutes an additional space for people to communicate, work, trade or spend leisure time. And increasingly, too, a place to learn. We have currently reached a stage at which a mapping of Web-based learning environments (WBLE) is required to answer crucial questions at the content, teaching, learning and communication levels. To relate to these questions we developed a Taxonomy of WBLE's, implemented it for the study of about 500 educational Websites, and elaborated on practical implications of the study's results. The overall picture we have unveiled may sound deceptive, and can be summarized as "one step ahead for the technology, two steps back for the pedagogy". But a more thoughtful consideration of the results suggest directions for the further development of novel Web-based educational models.
