In this paper we argue that e-learning is changing from a primarily distributive mode to a more
collaborative mode. This enables e-learning to step up the ladder, and to turn to competence
oriented pedagogical models. Three steps are taken: First the changes e-learning is currently
undergoing are explored and summarised, secondly the concept of competence is defined, and
thirdly, pedagogical conditions for competency oriented e-learning are elaborated. The paper
results in illustrating competence-based learning by a applying Kolb’s learning cycle.
