The Web is increasingly challenging software engineering education, because it has the power of being a unique tool for implementing change in teaching and learning. But still, the Web is used just for information transfer duplicating the objectivist techniques found in the traditional classroom. However, as teachers have gained more experience of using the Web, there has been a shift from the objectivist mode of teaching to the constructivist mode of learning. For many instructors, constructivism offers far more scope for realizing possible learning benefits of using the Web. This paper focuses on the application of the constructivist learning theory to the development of a Web-based course in object-oriented software engineering.
