As part of a radical curriculum change, the Faculty of Engineering and Surveying at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) introduced a strand of four problem-based learning (PBL) courses in 2002 . While the first of these courses concentrates on building team skills, the second in the strand, Engineering Problem Solving 2 (ENG2102), introduces statistical analysis, basic physics concepts and elements of GIS and mapping as part of the technical content. The annual enrolment in this course is about 250 including over 100 students studying this course externally. One of the important factors to be considered in the design and delivery of such course is to provide an effective e-learning system considering that a significant number of the students study through the distance mode.
