The objective of this research paper is to critically examine the advantages and challenges of implementing online Problem-Based Learning (PBL) using the Xuexitong learning app. The paper highlights the diverse range of functionalities offered by Xuexitong that align with the principles of PBL. Students can access shared materials, form study teams, submit assignments and receive feedback, conduct online surveys, and engage in group discussions. Teachers, on the other hand, can upload electronic textbooks, communicate with students conveniently, provide guidance on student projects, and assess assignments. Furthermore, the paper presents a comparative analysis of PBL with other teaching methods. The findings reveal that online PBL transcends spatial barriers and facilitates face-to-face communication. It enhances students’ problem-solving skills, promotes effective time management, and fosters a sense of cooperation among learners. For teachers, online PBL promotes more active teacher-student interaction, allowing for effective guidance and feedback exchange with students. Despite the advantages, the paper also acknowledges the challenges associated with online PBL, including technical issues related to online devices and learning materials. By analyzing various online PBL cases, the paper identifies potential obstacles that may arise in the implementation of PBL through Xuexitong. The other problems are students’ reluctance to learn independently and the lack of attention when studying online. The paper serves as a valuable resource for enhancing the online PBL system, providing teachers and students with a comprehensive understanding of the functionalities offered by Xuexitong and how they can be effectively utilized in online PBL courses. However, it is important to note that further research is warranted to identify and address potential technical challenges associated with online PBL.
