In this chapter problem-based learning is used as a pedagogical model to examine how learning technology might support interdisciplinary studies. The chapter starts by considering common misperceptions of E-learning. It then provides a framework for understanding problem-based learning methods and explores ways in which a range of technologies might support problem-based learning. The chapter also discusses issues raised by the use of technology to support learning.
