This paper describes a study in which a WWW learning environment was created using socio-constructivist instructional design principles. A qualitative research method was used to investigate the learning behaviours of classroom-based students in this instructional setting. In particular the study sought to investigate collaborative learner behaviours in settings where the instructional materials involved open-ended investigations and learner support by means of a printed guide. Observations of student behaviours provided little to confirm our contentions that such environments will create an instructional setting which encourages cooperation, reflection and articulation among students.
