At the University of Twente many courses apply group based learning as a successful strategy for those educational settings in which the application and integration of theory is the main theme. Also the University of Twente encourages instructors to consider the use of information and communication technology solutions if appropriate (Collis, 1996). "People, Technology and Organisation-2" is a course focusing on organisation theory and its relevance for designing business organisations. Students work in project groups studying both theory and case-studies. To stimulate the reading of theory articles a Web-site was set up. The whole set of 24 articles is too much for each individual student, so each group divides the articles among its members. Every group has to submit for each of the 24 articles sets of 'question & answer' that target the core of the article. The submissions on a particular article together form a resource for all groups, though only accessible for those groups who submitted a serious contribution themselves. In this paper we report on the problem analysis of the educational setting, the web-solution, and on the evaluation results of the experiment which took place in the period September - November 1998.
