A reliable and noble taxonomy that categories Internet-based technologies (IBT) integrated into language curricula, which would enable language teachers and learners to quickly grasp the nature. This taxonomy is tested with students taking a media technology course for its validity. The taxonomy is based on the simple and well-established construct of locus of control and came up with three types of IBT found in language classrooms. As a pedagogical tool, it has the potential to help students of IBT applications to quickly and easily grasp the host of IBT programs and their uses. As a research tool, the taxonomy provides a framework in which research questions asked can be made more precise. It is hoped that the proposed taxonomy will serve as a useful research and instructional tool and also to attract more taxonomies to serve the various research needs of IBT applications.
