Abstract

For using virtual learning environments and e-learning portals cross-discipline, in a wider scale and in fields like logistics or engineering requiring strong problem-solving competencies, it is essential to improve interactivity requested by the student. The more complex problems and exercises are the better they meet requirements of professional life. The paper presents an example of how problem-based learning can be implemented in a web-based learning environment. For this, LogEduGate which is an e-learning environment tailor-made to the specific needs of logistics education includes a virtual project workspace providing learners with access to all knowledge units, a wide variety of additional tools and a selection of projects. Pre-condition was (i) a consequent structuring of content into information, learning and project modules, and (ii) a clear separation of specific problems and general scenarios the problems are located in.
