Abstract

The paper presents a development of web-based learning environment for constructivist learning in higher education. The main focus in the design was to take into account recent findings of pedagogical research and availability of new technologies in order to create efficient and effective learning support for the engineering students. The central component of the environment is a virtual laboratory, which is defined as a service that can be used in a cloud – LaaS (Laboratory as a Service). The paper also presents our experience with the environment used in Computer Science classes with over 700 students who experienced active forms of learning, collaboration and appropriate feedback.
