Introduction
The Internet has succeeded in emerging as a major component in our daily lives, and its presence in education sector is outstanding. Web-based education has been enjoying an upper hand and has succeeded in getting attention of learners and the instructors. Web-based learning and teaching involves the use of appropriate technology with the corresponding pedagogical approaches managed in the intelligent era.

There are currently three basic aspects within the concept of web-based learning and teaching technologies: students, instructors, and technologies. Teachers aided by web-based technology will not only promote the transformation of teaching mode from knowledge transmission to knowledge construction, including flipped classroom, screen-to-screen experimental teaching and other activities, but also alleviate the problems of teacher shortage and uneven resource allocation in poor areas with web-based classes, such as the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). For students, web-based learning and teaching platform is helpful to cultivate their innovation ability and cooperative spirit, realize more diversified and accurate intelligent learning guidance and process evaluation, and promote individual and sustainable development. For example, they can choose web-based synchronous and asynchronous classes according to their own abilities and interests, so that the personalized education is possible. From the aspect of technologies, the web-based platforms play a significant role in providing formative feedback on students’ performance and teachers’ teaching effects. All these will promote scientific education decision-making and accurate resource allocation, and accelerate the formation of a modern education public service system.
