In most solutions for supporting learning today one single approach to learning is leading the selection, installation and usage of IT based tools. Either content-based approaches lead to the creation of a content-based infrastructure with course management systems and content repositories, or a collaboration background leads to the usage of virtual classrooms and collaborative learning environments. The TENCompetence project aims forward for integration of the different tools, perspectives and learning environments in a common open source infrastructure based on today’s standards on the level of knowledge resources, learning activities, competence development programs, and learning networks. TENCompetence will integrate tools in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and evaluate the approach in a variety of pilot applications for lifelong competence development.
