Abstract

Abstract: Web-based and web assisted instruction is becoming more and more important in higher education. Current online delivery and management platforms do not support alternative forms of knowledge representation and accordingly do not support problem solving approach. This paper presents a web-based environment developed for market equilibrium story problems in an introductory economics course. The environment is scaffolding the specific causal thinking process that underlines the Demand and Supply Equilibrium by exposing the student to worked examples and practice problems modeled with influence diagrams. Besides its learning dimension the proposed environment has also an important research potential.
