Along with the constant advance of information technology and the rapid development of the Internet, the diverse functions and characteristics of e-learning break through lots of limitations in traditional instruction. Properly integrating e-learning design with Internet activities could enhance students' learning effect, and applying digital technology to assist in teachers' instruction is a future trend of instruction. A nonequivalent experimental design is applied to the quasi-experimental research in this study, in which total 162 students in three classes in National Taipei University of Technology, Tung Fang Design Institute, National Yunlin University of Science and Technology in Taiwan are selected as the research subjects for the 16-week (three hours per week) experimental teaching research. The research results conclude that 1. thinking styles present significant effects on transfer of learning, 2. e-learning shows remarkable effects on transfer of learning, 3. liberal thinking styles reveal the best effect on promoting far transfer under e-learning, and 4. conservative thinking styles appear the best effect on promoting near transfer under e-learning. At the end, conclusions and suggestions are proposed in this study, expecting to provide teachers with some assistance in the teaching methods.
