We developed a problem-based situated learning environment (a Shockwave application delivered via WebCT) for post-graduate medical residents to circumvent the problems of their frequent inability to participate in structured learning opportunities. The application of sound instructional design (the coherence of objectives, strategies and evaluation) was vital in the development of this module. This module allows for learning to occur anytime and in any location. Residents can schedule their learning opportunities when they are most receptive to instruction. They have the opportunity to examine a patient at a virtual bedside, formulate a diagnosis, pursue appropriate investigations and implement the necessary treatments without even being physically present in a hospital. Future developments include SCORM 1.3 compliance as well as multiple cases as part of the virtual environment.
