This paper describes a project aimed at finding new ways for collaboration learning using the Activity Based Training (ABT) method and touch sensitive whiteboards as a common work area.
Two groups have been tested for one semester in physics during a qualification course for engineering education. In addition there have been three control groups using traditional classroom learning.

Each session consisted was divided into for parts:
- Laboratory work with measurements using computer loggers.
- Theory. Calculations and interpretation of the measurements
- Solving theory problems. The students’ were given problems related to the laboratory work.
- Documentation. A final report was achieved and delivered using the learning management system before the students left the laboratory.

The main goals were to enhance learning and interest and enthusiasm for physics among the students. The final achievements are evaluated through students’ feedback and results from the final exam compared to the results from the control groups.
