This research investigates the pedagogical effects of collective memory enhanced virtual city models as an e-learning environment for urban design in an Indonesian university context. In this study, collective memory refers to expressions people made when remembering buildings, spaces and places of the past and present city living. A city's collective memory is either elicited from or produced directly by the city's residents or visitors. The thesis presents the outcomes of designing an experimental collective memory enhanced virtual city (CREATI) platform and applying it to the urban design course at the Department of Architecture, Atma Jaya Yogyakarta University, Indonesia. The Jalan Malioboro area in Yogyakarta was chosen as the case study site for constructing 30 virtual city models and gathering records of collective memory associated with the street and city. Student participants were invited to use CREATI while undertaking the urban design course. The usability and effects of CREATI on the students' learning outcomes are analysed according to the learning experiences reported by the students as well as the urban design proposals they produced for the course. The study finds that students appear more knowledgeable about the urban contextual issues because of accessing and sharing the resources hosted on CREATI. Students also reported that they felt better supported in developing more context­ sensitive design proposals by working with the collective memory enhanced virtual city models.
