The paper presents a WWW-based group support system (GSS) to facilitate the teaching/learning process. The authors also describe their experiences over four successive editions of a pilot course offered using the GSS. They show the methodologies used and draw some results, experiences and impressions from this experience. They further describe planned future research, including discussion of the possibility of using this method to support distance education.
