Problem-based learning is an increasing popular approach to teaching and learning with demonstrated effectiveness in traditional face-to-face courses. This paper will describe the process of re-designing a traditional (print-based) problem-based learning simulation for use online in a hybrid teacher education course. Issues to be addressed include design considerations faced in the re-design of materials for online use; the different types of expertise and technical support used in redesigning materials and developing new multimedia and/or video materials; the time and resources required to make various changes, and lessons learned from using the revised materials in a hybrid course. The advantages (and some disadvantages) of presenting and supporting problem-based learning activities online will be discussed. The further re-design of the online simulation for use in a fully online version of the course, now under development, will also be presented.
