An online lesson, entitled "Vitamins and Health" was developed for a basic food nutrition course. The Web-based instruction (WBI) was used as a self-study tool to complement formal instruction. Food sources and nutrition compositions of foods are also provided with fruitful visual information. The use of images, motions, and dynamic features of the learning tool, also makes the instructional content easily comprehended by learners. To optimize students' involvement and engagement with the learning materials, the task-oriented approach is employed in teaching. Web assignments were also given. Students were required to study the Web-based learning materials and complete the assignment on the Web. They were also encouraged to learn collaboratively through online discussion. Students' responses toward the learning experience were gathered.
