Abstract: This paper presents the framework underlying the design of an online interactive learning environment for complex dynamic systems, including the rationale for the design and its research underpinnings. The design framework is discussed in detail, as are the three key domain elements of importance for the design: a fading scaffolding instructional method adopted in the design, instructional techniques used to implement the chosen method — storytelling, repeated trial, intensive feedback & item branching, and a web-based instructional tool developed to integrate the chosen method and techniques. The general structure of the learning environment, its online delivery, and its assessment strategies are described, including user interface and feedback formats employed. Distributions of tasks and items by problem nature and context, and according to cognitive process are specified. Results of surveys, which were conducted to assess students’ affective domains, are also included in the paper.
