In line with the five strategic plan of Petra Christian University, focusing on the issues of Caring, Globalization, IT-based campus, Excellence, Efficiency and Effectiveness, the Mechanical Engineering Study Program of Petra Christian University has decided to integrate the use of internet into the traditional, face to face setting of learning process in class. Developing A Webbased learning environment has become a consideration to house the class materials as well as to conduct online learning activities to go hand-in-hand with the traditional class activities. Some general characteristics of a web-based learning, such as access to learning resources and guest lecturers, two-way communication between students and their instructor, online discussion and collaboration among students even across campuses domestically and internationally, as well as online exercises and tests are some features designed into the online environment. Those features are designed to provide the students with more flexible, relatively easy and wider access to learning process and experiences in terms of space, time and global perspectives. SCORM conformed course material standardization is also used to give rooms for imported, shareable and re-useable course materials. User Registration, course management as well as grade-books are among those features designed for administrative and management purposes. A personalized and customized space for each instructor and student is highlighted in this learning environment to allow flexibility and personalization. This customization allows the instructors to develop flexible instructional designs for their courses. It also allows the students to integrate the intra and extra-curricular activities as well as to choose preferred way of knowledge gathering and sharing. The personalized space includes an exposure to the profiles of instructors and students within each course, with links to their individual portfolios. Those exposures allow them to get to know more of each other such as the teaching philosophy, learning styles, dreams, experiences, achievements etc. Together with spaces for online group discussion and collaborative works, this personalized space is specifically designed to develop a student-centered learning environment as a manifestation of CARE as the main focus of Petra Christian University Strategic Plan. It is also designed to support the onsite face to face learning mode with its emphasis on the human aspect such as unmediated presence of role models, affection and feelings to keep that spirit of CARE. This integrated mode of learning implemented in PCU-CAMEL serves as an effort toward the improvement of teaching and learning process at the Mechanical Engineering Study Program of Petra Christian University. By providing various approaches of learning in a student-centered learning environment, PCU-CAMEL is expected to enrich the learning experiences and develop more intrinsic motivation of the students as one of the key success to learn. Discussion of problems on e-learning practices in different forms conducted in some other Study Programs will also be addressed to serve as lessons learned in developing PCU-CAMEL
