Characterizing, structuring and supplying necessary knowledge for solving complex problems in today’s dynamically changing environments is a great challenge. This paper provides an introductory description of the STUDIO learning environment that supports learners in applying and evaluating knowledge and in adapting changes to their own context quickly. The focus of the current study is on analysing learning characteristics and behaviours of undergraduate students of a Management Information System course, who used the STUDIO to facilitate the acquisition of required knowledge. A detailed description of data analysis and the interpretation of results applying cognitive frameworks will be provided.
