1. Introduction

Engineering Design Courses (henceforth, ED Courses), characterized by Project-Based Learning in Teams, are unique to Kanazawa Institute of Technology (henceforth, KIT). A total of 1,700 engineering students from all eight engineering departments must take Engineering Design Courses I through III before they graduate. In each Engineering Design Course, the students must conduct two hours of in-class instructed learning as well as four hours of outside-class learning activities in teams per week for ten weeks. KIT has also been a laptop engineering institution since 1994, offering students a 24/7 learning activity lounge and e-Learning system in order to support their out-of-class learning. Fifty Engineering Design Courses are offered in each year. In order to maintain a high level of quality in the course management, a learning manual for students as well as a course management manual for instructors have been published as shown in Figure 1, and a web site to offer virtual learning space to students has been set up. All manuals as well as the corresponding
