The purpose of this research is to design a web based learning model using collaborative learning techniques and a scaffolding system to enhance learners' competency in higher education. The research and development methodology is employed in this work. In the phase of designing the web-based learning model shown in this paper, the target group consists of experts. Several methods used in designing the web-based learning model are as follows: 1) Examining and analyzing the principles and

Many learning principles and theories are related to this study such as constructivist learning theory, collaborative learning techniques and principles about instructional design. The results are revealed as follows. Firstly, the web-based learning model using collaborative learning techniques and a scaffolding system to enhance learners' competency in higher education composes of 5 components that are: (1) Problem base, (2) Resources, (3) Related cases, (4) Scaffoldings and (5) Community for collaborative learning. Secondly, the design of the model evaluated by 4 experts complies with learning principles and theories and the experts accept the model in a high level at 72.56% overall.
