With the introduction of Web-Based Instruction (WBI) the traditional classroom-based higher education could be made more effective form of instruction. But the studies have shown the negative results[1]. On the other hand the distance education has derived the direct benefit of WBI through extending classroom instruction in online to reach every remote student. However researchers have identified reasons for the lack of effectiveness of WBI in both classroom and distance education. WBI along with a suitable learning strategy is a tangible solution. As the learning strategy based entirely on the constructivists approach may not be feasible for the students with less or no experience our studies recommend a hybrid strategy called Integrating Multiple Learning Strategies (IMLS) that can be implemented to achieve the effect of e-Learning. This study presents the issues identified with the WBI-based learning paradigm and WebCT, various learning approaches and feasible e-Learning models around WebCT for IMLS approach
