The use of the Internet for teaching and learning purposes has gained much attention over the last few years. Using the World Wide Web for delivering courseware has become more and more popular. Increasingly educators in tertiary institutions have realised the potential of Web-based instruction for improving teaching efficiency and learning effectiveness. This paper consists of three main parts. Part One outlines the experience of the three authors in their design and development of a self-learning and Chinese-interface homepage on "Elementary Number Theory". A draft version of the courseware will be tried out on two classes (about 30 participants in each class) of in-service teachers attending summer school at the Hong Kong Institute of Education as supervised independent study materials. The participants' feedback on the use of this Web-based package will be collected, analysed and reported in Part Two. Implications of the findings will be discussed in Part Three.
