In this paper, we describe the design and development process used to create Alien Rescue, a new media-enhanced learning environment that supports problem-based learning (PBL) in middle school science. A unique characteristic of the project is that it is developed entirely by a team of graduate students in learning technologies, working under the direction and supervision of the faculty. Throughout the development process, graduate student developers learn steps and strategies for designing immersive learning environments, engage in technology development, and conduct research that informs future design iterations. Key features of the development model are described in detail and developers’ reflections are shared.
