Project-based Learning (PBL) involves searching, understanding, organising and applying a large amount of learning resources in solving a problem. PBL for a team encourages the sharing of learning resources and peer communication within the project team. There are many PBL system implementations which lack centralized learning resources management. This paper proposes an ontological knowledge structure in managing the collected learning resources and a mechanism to help organising these learning resources into a structure representing the project domain knowledge in order to fulfill the learning objectives of the designated project.
