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.
