Abstract

This paper discusses about e-learning resources for supporting the implementation of sustainable environmental design (SED) in the architecture discipline. The research has identified from the literature that organisation of learning materials, visualisation of information and enabling interdisciplinary communication are the key factors of designing an effective e-learning tool for this task. The review found the available e-learning resources being very limited in number with respect to building physics. The EDUCATE Portal and Autodesk Sustainability Workshop website can be considered good examples of the e-learning tools reviewed in this paper.
