In web-based learning settings where most teaching materials are being organized by hypertext methodology, learners are liable to get lost when they are confronted with vast amounts of information, and experience the so-called low-performance phenomenon when they are unable to receive and deal with the information. This article analyzes factors causing this phenomenon, and discusses how to cultivate and form a positive learning habit in web-based learning, how to adapt the field orientation style to web-based learning, and how to create a human cultural milieu appropriate to web-based learning.
