Distributed Internet-based Performance Support Environment for Individualized Learning (DIPSEIL) is a project to define, develop and test a distributed system for individualized learning and the underlying pedagogical procedures to implement, facilitate and promote performance-centered learning experiences in the context of international university education. Using DIPSEIL Model we have developed the first prototype of DIPSEIL with two main characteristics: Distribution and Individualization. Distribution reflects mainly on the functionality and organization of the Editor – the system for the teachers. Individualization reflects on the way that the user will use DIPSEIL system – Student Area. DIPSEIL promotes the concept of distributed learning with an attempt to make a conceptual shift from a support of individual learning, based on information processing, towards a support of learning based on distributed cognition.

This project answers to the need of development of a complete master degree program at the point of intersection between information technology and communications. The innovative performance-centred approach has been developed, tested and implemented and our partnership experience returned strong positive results - it has been proven to be more effective than the traditional lecture-practice-test (expository inductive) in training higher order skills, for preparing learners for self-learning, improving and adapting for changing jobs.
