By the way, the PBL Clearinghouse was recently updated to be made openly available, taking away the need to register and log in. All problems are now available as Google Documents and can be copied, tweaked, translated, etc. Most of them have been assigned a Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC By NC) license as well. The new URL is: New contributions are encouraged!

Unfortunately, this link is to a web site that describes a PBL resource, but does not provide instructions on how that site is accessed. After googling the site, I did locate it. In order to access site resources, a user must first register by completing an online application. It would be nice to view a summary of PBL resources before registering. The site enables users to search resources by keyword, discipline, or author. I was interested specifically in electrical engineering PBL resources. My search resulted in one PBL resource. The resouce provided problem statements, Student Learning Objectives, Evaluation Rubric , Authors' Teaching Notes, and Assessment Strategies.
