This paper proposed an integrated problem-based learning (PBL) approach in a web-based context to help students acquire knowledge. Important aspects of the PBL framework such as the use of problem sets, instructional contents, basic knowledge, exploration, facilitator, and scaffolding were discussed. The application of the PBL approach to a web-based instruction was implemented and evaluated. Students' responses were gathered from different aspects, including: instructional functions, use of resources, use of discussion, and assignment. On the theoretical aspect, this study raises the issues that constitute the use of PBL in a web-based approach. On a practical level, the use of PBL has achieved its intended purpose of fostering more meaningful learning.
