Web-based learning provides many new and potentially integrated educational capabilities to support diverse educators’ and learners’ needs via technology. The growing development of the Internet and increasing web-based technologies are influencing the dynamics of teaching and learning on many different levels. This chapter focuses on the implementation of the Ford Partnership for Advanced Studies web-based curriculum in two local high school settings. It includes data from the students’ perceptions of the program and how they feel about the web-based curriculum in relation to a traditional curriculum. In addition, this chapter examines other authentic learning methods and how these methods affect students’ learning. Other aspects of web-based learning are analyzed and presented in the chapter. Web-based technology is not about replacing education as we know it; it is about combining contextual applications with life-long learning.
