The teaching practicum is a crucial component in initial teacher training. Its main purpose is to
provide student teachers the opportunity to practice and develop their teaching skills under the supervision of experienced teachers. Due to the recent development on the Internet, educators
have become aware of the advantages of integrating it into various instructional and administrative activities. It is our intent to take advantage of these new developments to improve the implementation of the teaching practicum. As a first step, it is important to learn from the existing web-sites related to the practicum. Therefore, in this paper, we will: (a) report results of an extensive search of existing teaching practicum web-sites, (b) identify their strengths and weaknesses in design, and (c) provide suggestions for further exploration in this area.
