The present paper reports the requirements, design, and learning effects of online collaboration support tools for project-based learning (PBL) applied to the development of embedded software. In this research, the authors created a new program that blends face-to-face classes and e-Learning classes. They also developed a computer-supported collaborative learning environment. In the present paper, the requirements for the collaboration support tools for the learning program are clarified through observation of a real PBL course. Based on this observation, an online repository tool and a unified search tool are proposed and implemented. The online repository tool was applied in a trial course blending face-to-face and online activities. Participants in the trial course completed a questionnaire survey. According to the survey responses, the blended learning program is feasible for PBL of embedded software design, and the online repository tool facilitates collaborative activities between learners and is effective for expanding each learnerfs design ability.
