The benefits of active learning (AL) - and more specifically problem-based learning (PBL) - as an effective approach to teaching and learning are supported not only by current learning theories but also by empirical evidence. Similarly, the benefits of the use of information and communication technology tools in teaching and learning, for example in connection with what has been termed ‘the flipped classroom’, are well documented. A challenge, however, is how to secure students’ active learning in connection with online learning. In this paper we will address the question of how to implement PBL learning principles in online learning material to be used in a flipped classroom situation. We will do this through a presentation of our work with designing case based open source learning material, based on some of the main principles of problem based learning, such as, authentic real life problems, collaborative learning and contextualisation, followed by a self-critical analysis of the strengths and - more importantly - the weaknesses of the prototype material developed. The present case scenario is based on a development project providing water and electricity supply systems to a training workshop for disabled women in a small village in Kenya. We will present the design process, the experiences gained, the lessons learned and the recommendations extracted from our first attempt to develop online learning material.
