The paper introduces a web-based interactive environment for creating and exploring software artefacts. The authors describe a case study where the environment has been combined with Moodle and used for the implementation of an online introductory database course currently being taught as part of computer science degree programme. The aim is to show how the environment can offer web-based education that goes beyond providing digital learning materials, by supporting the learner at different kinds of learning activity, from guiding along a well-defined path, to exploring particular paths of interest, and eventually, to creating a new path for themselves.
