Abstract

In a degree program traditionally offering problem-based-learning (PBL) in a classroom setting, we began to explore how information technology could improve tertiary education for indigenous Australians. As a result, problem-based-electronic-learning (PBeL) was devised, piloted and implemented online from 2003. This case study allows reflection on the problems and possibilities associated with this change to the learning environment for the indigenous-majority student population.
