In the problem based learning approach, students work in groups on real world problems, and in so doing determine their learning requirements for the related subject areas. A common feature of problem-based learning is to provide a range of resources that the students can access to obtain assistance with solving the problems they have been set. Multimedia and Internet resources lend themselves to this. To provide a focus for our work, we will concentrate on the use of problem based learning for introductory programming, but a goal will be to develop an approach to the resource development and staff training that would be of use to any single subject problem based learning approach.
