This paper describes and rationalises the use of database driven activities and resources for Web-based learning. Database driven Web resources differ from conventional Web-based resources in that they tend not to exist in discrete forms of HTML but are generated dynamically through such means as learner interaction. Database driven applications are built around the use of the Web as' a means to store, retrieve and develop media resource. The applications are controlled by software engines that provide the functionality and flexibility for both teachers' and students' to interact with Web resources and content. This' paper describes various forms of database driven resources for learners' and discusses the learning opportunities that result.
