A multimedia courseware development course was taught trough project based learning to 52 prospective computer teachers. The students were requested to work in groups for their projects. They were interviewed about their perceptions during the last five weeks. In each meeting students were asked semi-structured questions about their experiences in doing the group project. Students’ answers were analyzed through content analysis. The findings of the study indicated that majority of the students found project based learning beneficial in learning the course content. Most of the students indicated that the applied instructional approach had positive effect on their motivation. The important criteria in selecting their group peers were having friendship, having worked before in the same group and being able conveniently meet. Majority of the students indicated that signing a contract with their group peers had positive effect towards their taking responsibility.
