How do you make students read the readers or even the textbook? If they have read them, have they obtained the necessary concepts or understood the content? How can these concepts be readily checked on a weekly basis? How can excellent solutions developed by peers be shared so all other students benefit from these exemplars? These questions have vexed educators for many years, and continue to do so. With the trend to move away from didactic forms of teaching, and a push toward using online technologies to promote learning, new opportunities are being presented to help solve these problems. This paper outlines an online teaching strategy used to help students engage with course content through a learning design that encourages student teams to brainstorm ideas, collect information, research a variety of sources of information, synthesize this information into coherent solutions, assess other peers solutions, and then reflect on the results by viewing the best solutions
