The results indicated that the students' gender, grade and type of college (public or private) were effective factors influenced college students' Web-based autonomous learning ability. The result showed that boys were better adapted to Web-based autonomous learning than girls; Students' information processing capacity was continually grown while the students' intrinsic learning motivation of Web-based autonomous learning was decreased gradually in 3 Years. The Web-based autonomous learning ability of students in public colleges was superior to those in private colleges. The data showed that inside the environmental factors, compared with devices & tools, network access conditions and online learning resources, the teacher's support is insufficient. Correlation analysis demonstrated that four aspects of exterior environmental factors were positively related to the inner factors of learners. The author provided some suggestions for cultivating students' Web-based autonomous learning ability.
