We organized a web-based coursework (feasibility study) and seminar during our information management and information systems development course for some students (experimental group). The students worked on the given development problems of information systems in small groups. For the web-based seminar each group had their own workspace in the Web CT environment for publishing and presenting coursework. At the final phase of the coursework the students familiarized themselves with the presentations of other groups. After this course we ran the same course including a conventional coursework for other students (control group). We found that the WWW-based coursework and seminar have equal effect on learning different themes of the course. The students of IT faculty benefited more from the web-based coursework in the learning of building information systems. The Web CT-based coursework suits a little bit better for older students and it can enable effective group work in the bigger group
