Abstract—Active learning takes place when students are present in the classrooms’ activity and actively engaged with the subject matter. Active learning via website focuses on the content delivery and active engagement with the materials. However, the emergence of web-based learning environment which is supported by the changing technology at the present, is neglecting the students’ active participation in the learning processes. As a matter of fact, through the enhanced learning environment by the supported technology, students are able to play the role of an active learner. This paper examines how today’s web-based learning environment can be better designed for students’ active learning as in science subjects. This research proposed the implementation of learning strategies to encourage active participation among the students.
