Interactive multimedia (IMM) and problem-based learning (PBL) are both significant trends in contemporary educational practice but they have not been widely applied together in teach-er education. An IMM package based on PBL principles is being developed to assist teachers in learning to integrate technology into their teaching. It incorporates examples of the work and re-flections of experienced teachers in a framework designed to en-gage users with authentic problems of professional practice. Pre-liminary evaluation of a prototype suggests that the strengths of IMM and PBL can be combined to produce a good effect.
