Findings: Students are able to design e-learning environments that provide effective contexts for learning. This approach seems to set in motion deep and lasting change in schools.

Abstract: Despite optimism about new technologies for learning, e-learning innovation has been slow to advance. This research investigated whether an e-learning environment designed by students would scale easily in schools. The Genesis Project is a collaborative undertaking between three schools and a university, and was used to create an opportunity for students as researchers to conceive, prototype and test an e-learning environment in which they and other students could explore ideas of interest to them.
