This paper discusses the rationale underlying enquiry-based learning in terms of problem-solving activity and the technical infrastructure needed to support it. Some of the issues underlying the implementation of this approach to learning are considered - giving particular emphasis to the use of interactive pictorial forms and the rich learning outcomes that can be achieved through their use. A case study is presented which illustrates some of the issues involved in using computer-based images to support interactive approaches to enquiry-based learning.
