School for All in the EduCities programme is an innovative project funded by both the Ministry of Education and the National Science Council of Taiwan. The project aims to challenge the rationale of conventional education: only teachers teach and students learn. This paper reports on a project which investigated if anyone who is prepared to engage in web education can teach with the aid of Information Technology. This was done by holding contests of web courses. In the first contest, 290 courses were registered for the competition and were evaluated in several phases. Consequently 15 outstanding online teachers were selected for an award. The purpose of this paper is to document the study and to report the preliminary results that include the characteristics of the outstanding online teachers, such as age, occupation and pedagogical strategy.
