The purposes of this study are to investigate the effects of three scaffolding types, such as ‘providing explanation scaffolding’, ‘providing cue scaffolding’, ‘inviting student participation scaffolding’ on problem solving phase in web-based learning. This paper thus addressed the questions: Are there any meaningful differences in the problem solving phases such as ‘understanding problem’, ‘developing solution’, ‘applying solution’, ‘reviewing’ among the three different scaffolding types? The results were summarized as follows:(1)Providing explanation scaffolding type showed significant effects in ‘understanding problem’ phase. (2)There was no significant difference in the ‘developing solution’ phase, among three different groups. (3) Providing cue scaffolding type applied in this study showed significant effects in ‘applying solution’ phase. (4) There was no significant difference in the ‘reviewing’ phase, among three different groups.
