The work presented in this paper aims to support and promote the learning process in introductory computer science courses by engaging students actively in various learning activities. The activities are designed following contemporary theories of learning and assessment and are available through the web-based adaptive collaborative learning environment SCALE. The paper discusses the main features of the SCALE environment and the design of leaning activities, gives an outline of indicative activities developed and presents preliminary results of a pilot study conducted in the context of an introductory computer science course.
