Heidi Tan Yeen-Ju and Neo Mai
Abstract—This paper presents a study that sought to look at the use of web technologies in supporting collaboration among undergraduate students working in groups to solve problems. The learning environment was designed to be authentic, centering on a problem-based group project and incorporated web technologies. Student attitude and perceptions were gathered through the use of a 5-point Likert scale questionnaire, open ended questions and interviews. The results indicate that students responded positively towards this learning environment and support the incorporation of web technologies to create conducive learning environments that facilitate collaborative problem-solving.

Index Terms—Authentic learning environments, problem-solving, web technologies.
