Keywords: curriculum development, e-learning, e-tutoring, competences, e-developing.
An attempt was made towards creating appropriate curriculum for master studies in e-learning, through analyzing necessary competences, defining modules and grouping them. The analysis comprises competencies for e-tutors, competences for e developers and technology competences, including pedagogical and didactical point of view. The ultimate goal towards creating new e-learning curricula is to make possible the teaching of high-quality, industry-relevant, and practically-oriented skills in designing, developing, implementing and maintaining e-learning systems.
