eLearning has deficiencies. It is difficult to monitor students’ learning progress and verify students’ understanding of a topic. Self Monitoring System(SMS) and Adaptive Exercise System(AES) is a solution to the problem. With SMS, students can actively monitor their learning progress for better efficiency. With AES, professors can determine which levels of exercises the student should take for progressive learning. This paper presents a methodology of using sequencing instructions of fixed format case study and free format empirical study for self learning process. The fixed format provides a predefined input and fixed model answer output for students to obtain general concept of the topic. The free format provides a chance for the students to apply their learned knowledge a real life situation. We focus on teaching students how to apply their learnt knowledge in a real life application such as data modeling techniques by eLearning.
