E-learning in the context of problem-based learning (PBL) refers to the use of software to: support the learning of specific knowledge and skills, support communication and group work, and support assessment and reflection. This chapter presents examples of each of the three categories of the use of e-learning in order to illustrate the experiences with e-learning. At the end of the chapter, the advantages and potential disadvantages of e-learning in a PBL environment are discussed and a peek into the future of e-learning in PBL is offered.
