Abstract: 
The World Wide Web (WWW) has become widely used in many areas including
commerce, entertainment, news media, communication, and education. Education has been
transformed with the use of the World Wide Web. An ever expanding range and increasing
variety of information is now easily accessible at the click of a mouse. Students need not travel
to classes and to libraries where information in its printed form is rather slow in being updated.
The roles of students and teachers in educational settings involving the use of the World Wide
Web have also changed to one in which students take on a more active role in learning
(Collins, 1991). This project investigated the effectiveness of using student created website as a
mode of assessment in an elective module (Fundamentals of Group Guidance) in the Bachelor
of Arts/ Bachelor of Science with Diploma in Education programme at the National Institute of
Education. Students’ prior attitudes and usage of computers & WWW were assessed at the
beginning of the course. Students’ attitudes toward the website creation assignment were
assessed. The problems and implications of the website creation assignment are discussed.
