Self-paced, free start education
The concept of self-paced, free start education is probably best explained with the help of an example. Dalarna University's two-year programme Development of e-Services is unique in Sweden with it's extreme flecibility that means that students can literally start whenever they like and study at the desired paced, All dependent on each and every students individual situation and previous experience of higher education.
The programme, which is entirely web-based but with a personal, interactive examination and mentorship thruogh web-meetings, is built up on a number of modules or so called learning objects and has shown to be well equipped to meet the needs of the business world as well as those of each individual student.
The aim of this partial project is to further develop the flexible concept and solve issues on both a pedagogical level and an adminstrative level.
