This research is to articulate a learning process in resource-based well-structured instruction in webbased distance learning environment. To explore the learning process, a web resource-based self-learning program, which is highly structured with structuring elements from literature review, was developed as a college level course. Sixty-seven junior students at a cyber university in Korea, aged from 20s to 50s, were required to learn the program given for eight weeks. Students? perceived learning processes from Questionnaires, achievement scores, satisfaction levels, interview data, were collected and analyzed. As a result, an observable action model and a conceptual model of the learning process were derived, which students and experts verified. Cognitive achievement factor and satisfaction factor were also considered in the learning process model. Consequently the learning process constitutes a major phase (initiation ? contact learning material ? internal process ? individual understanding ? externalization ? internalization) and a minor phase (minor informal offline interaction among students) in resource-based highly structured self-learning. Implications of each stage in the model and recommendations for further study were suggested.
