In a blended learning environment, where students undertake professional skills development in the workplace, a flexible environment is designed in order to support problem solving in project management. The design of the environment, informed by socio-cultural theory, was intended to support knowledge building among students, and in particular to support exchange of ideas, peer review and commentary on solutions presented to problems, and a reflective space for exchange of ideas. The online environment incorporates a number of functional affordances that scaffold knowledge exchange, collaborative tasks and peer commentary. The design features of the online site are described and a proposed framework within which to evaluate the learning outcomes achieved is proposed.
