Abstract: Competence approach in education gives priority to learning outcomes and increased involvement of students in active, constructive engagement with content, tools and services in the learning process. Thus, quality and relevant learning materials are becoming more and more important for a learner. The strategy can be realised by encouraging faculties and students to use the online environment and see the real advantages of operating in it. One way to tackle this issue is to create a web portal of a community of practice – a system that is readily accessible for communication, tried-and-trusted and easy to use.

Keywords: innovative information environments; web portals; communities of practice; learning materials; education quality; online learning; e-learning; electronic learning.
