Abstract

Two graduate classes, from different academic programs, were brought together to work collaboratively on the design and development of a Web-Based Training project. The projects were problem-based and derived from students' workplace situations. The classes were supported by a course management system that provided supplemental instruction, communication and file-sharing capabilities, as well as access to common resources and instructor guidance and feedback. Students met with their instructors weekly, and met for an hour of each class with their teams. They continued the team discourse via message boards, chats, and electronically shared documents, all within the course management system. This paper describes this experience and the impact the computer-supported learning environment had on the quality of student projects and recounts some of the stumbling blocks and successes.
