The technology of the Internet has made it possible for universities to provide online courses. This paper attempts to investigate the impact of Web-based instruction on students' learning achievements,students' computer literacy and in their attitudes towards both the subject matter and computer-assisted learning. Web-based instruction in this study is used as a supplementary learning environment to the normal lecture-based delivery mode, whereby the students meet face-to-face with their instructor once a week throughout the semester, and the Web CT platform was used for both synchronous and asynchronous deliveries of instructional materials and assignments. The results have shown that Web-based instruction has a significant impact on students' computer literacy, as well as on their attitudes toward computer-based learning. Accordingly, recommendations for effective utilization of Web-based learning environments are provided.
