The 21st century is the society of information technology and knowledge-based economy. To cope with the information society, teaching methods would be changed. Traditional chalk and talk can no longer adapt to the changing society. In addition to pass down the tradition, new ideas should also be introduced. In the informational age, the Internet becomes an essential living element and synchronous web-based teaching breaks through the obstacle of space, provides instant and multiple communication channels, and creates alternative creativity learning environment. With experimental design, total 208 students in Fujian University of Technology, as the research objects, are proceeded 15-week (3 hours per week for total 45 hours) experimental teaching. The research results show significant effects of 1.synchronous web-based teaching on creativity, 2.visually creative teaching on creativity, and 3.the combination of synchronous web-based teaching with visually creative teaching on the promotion of creativity. According to the results, suggestions are proposed, expecting to construct courses stressing on interdisciplinary integration and inspiring creativity as well as encouraging students to develop creativity through the “originality” of art.
