Industry has lead to unprecedented enrolments of students across a range of Higher Educational (HE) awards at Wolverhampton University. Recognizing the role that Design Education has on Construction Engineers, the School of Engineering and the Built Environment encourages all students to study a year 1 Architectural Computer Aided Design (CAD) course. With a population approaching 200 on this practical based course, staff concentration is evermore focused on CAD skills acquisition to the detriment of Design Principles and Processes. This paper presents a review of the current mechanism of delivery of the module which has been reviewed to identify how e-learning can best be employed to solve specific problems of large cohorts. Based on the user requirements obtained from students and academic staff, a new approach is developed that provides e-learning mechanisms for the key module competences. Live handouts were developed and a method of allowing students to put together an online ‘webfolio ’ of work undertaken within the module
