The study examined the perceived impact of Web-based learning environments on academic achievement of business education undergraduates. Three research questions were answered. A descriptive survey research design was used. The population of the study comprised 1,926 Business Education undergraduate students of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED) for the academic session 2019/2020. A total of 500 business education undergraduates were selected as study sample. Simple random sampling procedure was used for the selection of the sample. Researchers’ Instrument tagged ‘Web-Based Learning Environments and Academic Achievement Questionnaire (WBLEAAQ)’ was used for data collection. The reliability of the instrument was conducted among 20 business education undergraduates twice in Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ogun State and the data generated was subjected to Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) formula and which yielded 0.79 as reliability coefficient. Business education undergraduates CGPA were collected to measure their academic achievement. Descriptive statistics of mean was used for answering research questions one and two. Regression analysis was used for answering research question 3. The study findings shown that ability to access information in different area, efficient way to deliver course materials, access to resources from any location, increase the potential for widening access, promote social development, enhance interactive learning based and effective in time management were among the perceptions of business education undergraduates on the benefits of Web-based learning environments on academic achievement. Inadequate undergraduates’ motivation and engagement, poor state of infrastructure, inadequate financial resources, lack of learner motivation, students isolated problems, inequality in access to the technology by undergraduates, poor nature of maintenance culture and electricity supply issue were among the challenges confronting Web-based learning in public university environments. It was also revealed that the application of Web-based learning for instructional delivery could result to an increase in academic achievement of business education undergraduates. It was recommended that government and other stakeholders in university education should provide adequate financial resources for the purchase and installation of needed Web-based learning in system. Adequate training should be provided for the lecturers to handle Web-based learning very effective.
