In web based instruction, students' interests and needs vary greatly when compared with the traditional learning approaches. Therefore, trying to find solutions to the students' problems that are similar to the traditional learning approaches would yield poor results. Apart from that researches are needed to examine the various aspects of this new way of learning. In the light of this perspective, the current study investigates the factors that affect learners' academic achievement and attitudes in web based education. 127 students enrolled in the e-MBA Masters Degree of Bilgi University constituted the study group of the research. A survey method was used for the study and the data were collected by a Demographic Information Questionnaire and Web Based Education Attitudes Scale. Initially, Demographic Information Questionnaire and Web Based Education Attitudes Scale were administered to the e-MBA students. Then, the e-MBA Degree average course grades (GPA) were obtained from the department to determine academic achievement of the students. At the end of the study, it was revealed that web based education have positive effects on the improvement of academic achievement. The effect of web based education on attitude toward learning suggested that web use had positive effects mainly on motivation for learning and interested in the lessons. (Contains 7 tables.)
