Abstract

At the Open University of the Netherlands is a major project going on, which has set his goals on building an electronic learning environment called ELON-systems. ELON means Education and Learning Online. One of the major assumptions of the project is not only making an electronic learning environment, but also an educational renewal in which the surplus of ICT comes a front. The educational renewal is founded at the principals of competence-based education. When the principals of competence-based education are adopted, it leads to flexible, personalised education, and reduces the gap between the needs of the labour market and the output of education. One of the activities during the project was a further elaboration of the principals of competence-based education and its instructional design. This paper describes the outline of the principals of competence-based education and its components, which are defined in the ELON-project.
