Software-mediated learning requires adjustments in the teaching and learning process. In par¬ticular active learning facilitated through interactive learning software differs from traditional instructor-oriented, classroom based teaching. We present behavior analysis techniques for Web-mediated learning. Motivation, acceptance of the learning approach and technology, learn¬ing organization and actual tool usage are aspects of behavior that require different analysis techniques to be used. A combination of survey methods and Web usage mining techniques can provide accurate and comprehensive analysis results. These techniques allow us to evaluate active learning approaches implemented in form of Web tutorials.
