This article describes the process of creation of meaningful learning environment (MLE) following a three-dimensional process of activity-artifact-reflection cycle and recording the process of learning in the form of digital portfolios. Production of quality MLE and learning through MLE has been assured by following a method of feedback and evaluation, which consists of self-evaluation, peer-review and teacher-feedback in an integrated manner through various activities, e.g., online (synchronous and asynchronous) discussion, classroom group discussion and presentation; and feedback by the peer and the teacher. The present study is based on author's own practical experience of designing project-based activities. The activities are carried out using ICT and the students created electronic portfolios during the course of their study. The learning takes place through individual learning and collaborative learning through interaction with the team members and the teacher.
