Online instructional technology supports an organization's capability in the online environment for training hands-on skills. This study uses the modeling theory by developing an online three-stage training environment of technical skills. This paper describes the implementation of the online environment for the course “making of a network cable”, and evaluates the effectiveness of the online method. A survey was used in comparing the online instruction with face-to-face teaching by using the following criteria: learning content's presentation; students' attitude; students' completion of the skills; the effectiveness of online learning; the organisational capability of online courses; the requirement of IT skills for online teachers. The results prove that effective teaching strategies can encourage the learners to practice technical skills in online courses.
