Abstract

The article describes the current challenge for e-learning in higher education, which is to support development of competence. This poses great challenges to e-learning in higher education, mainly because the way it has been designed, in many cases, does not fit with supporting competence development. Rather, it facilitates the mere transfer of knowledge. Two different modes of e-learning organization are differentiated and described: the distributive and the collaborative e-learning modes. It is argued that the collaborative mode holds more potential for competence development than the distributive mode.
