    Problem-based learning (PBL) can be organized and conducted in a number of ways. Building a PBL application to support various PBL forms directly is difficult because the scope of variability cannot be completely known and there is a high cost in terms of time and efforts incurred. Existing PBL applications are developed usually to support a specific form of PBL. In this paper we propose a model-d... View full abstract»
