Home >Aims

The e-Learning Collaborative Development Fund (eCDF), which runs from 2004 to 2007, aims to build the e-learning capability of the tertiary education system thereby improving performance and assisting New Zealand to meet current and future economic, social and environmental challenges. This project assists with that goal by embedding the mechanisms by which dynamic, interesting problem or case-based scenarios can be delivered to distance students.

Objectives of this particular project were:

  • To develop and provide Government-owned NZ Tertiary Institutions (Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Wananga) with a customised version of PBL-Interactive, a web-based (server side) player and authoring tool for delivering problem-based scenarios across the Internet.
  • To develop at least 15 problem-based scenarios in a variety of subject domains for use as exemplars, to illustrate how the paradigm and software might be used.
  • To further develop and provide Government-owned NZ Tertiary Institutions with CHALLENGE FRAP, an electronic reporting program and guide for problem-based learning.
  • To develop training material in the use of PBL-Interactive, CHALLENGE FRAP and scenario-based learning generally.

As a result of this project, there is an enhanced capacity by the Tertiary Education Sector to develop and implement case-based or problem-based learning scenarios and to deliver practical application learning experiences by distance. With skilled use of the tools, student achievement (and assessment of) of concept mastery and problem-solving skills should be enhanced and capacity to carry out research on learning behaviour and processes should be improved.
