is necessary to give opportunities for discussion and work with pedagogical subjects to
establish the base for flexible learning. We have started to give seminars in these areas in will
try to develop this further. During 1999 we will have all courses on web, based on LEKTOR
still the focus will be interaction and not transport of information. The reason for using WWW
is that we see an increase in the number of students using local Studyshops and also an
increasing interest from the market in using this method, for example has some factories made
Studyshops for their employed. We also see a need for collaboration on various levels
within the educational system, both in Sweden and international.
