An online psychometric test of spatial ability (the 3D Ability test) was developed specifically for design-based disciplines. A series of online interactive 3D learning tasks designed to improve spatial skills are also provided. The learning tasks include remediation options for poor performers and purpose-designed gender neutral activities to address the gender bias in spatial performance. The test and 3D learning tasks are available on the project website.

Peer review in online and blended learning environments
This project sought to develop, implement and evaluate a scholarly framework, processes and resources for peer review of learning and teaching in online and blended learning environments. Specific issues relating to online and blended learning environments were identified as well as the need for formative feedback and professional development. Workshop materials, case studies, and an annotated bibliography are among the resources on the project website.
Peer review of online learning and teaching
The project developed an open-source, web enabled peer review tool (PROTL). The PROTL system incorporates banks of standards-based criteria for use in peer review, explanations of the meaning of these criteria, exemplars, and an underlying database that can record peer review results and make them available for promotion or awards. The project website provides resources such as an online manual, detailed guides, tutorials and features of the PROTL system, case studies and publications.

Business education in the 21st century: Examining the antecedents and consequences of student team virtuality
This project investigated the need to train students to be able to work effectively in teams, particularly virtual teams. The project was both research-driven and experience-based and considered the concept of ‘virtuality’ in teaching and learning at university. Virtuality for the purpose of this project refered to online collaboration by team members without the constraints of time and the necessity to be in the same place. The project sought to establish how to:
- design online resources to facilitate implementation of virtual student teams
- select appropriate technologies to support virtual student team activities
- provide online training for staff and students to assess readiness
- enhance the effectiveness of virtual teamwork
- evaluate virtual student team projects in the Australian business education context.
