International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Life-Long Learning (IJCEELL), Vol. 22, No. 1/2, 2012

Abstract: After studying a number of literature references and applying theories into practice, the author explores the application of the network-based learning model into public physical education (PE) courses in a university. Based on the 3a (three-year online courses) teaching reform practice, the study result shows that the students who use the network-based learning mode in the experimental group increase their physical quality more significantly than the control group after the second year. Also, the students in the experimental group participate in more extra-curricular activities. In addition, the students show great interest in the network-based learning mode. The result indicate that, for the teaching reform of college public PE courses, creating a teaching website based on the campus network and changing two-year public PE compulsory face-to-face courses to three-year online courses can be a future direction and a feasible trend; and class hours can be better managed by using the network and information technology. It has practical values and universal guiding significance for the current college PE course reform in the context of China and other similar developing countries.
