Abstract

In this paper we take the idea of e-learning a step further, from '' e '' to '' f '', indicating that the post-e-learning is on the doorstep. The '' f '' stands for freedom focusing on the freedom of the f-learner. As we will show, the demand for the freedom of the f-learner imposes certain boundaries to the freedom of the f-teacher - this is what we propose to handle by adopting the f-learning scenarios. For this quest we have developed a systems-description of the increase of personal knowledge, we analyze the interaction of the individual and organizational value systems, and we examine the possibilities of standardization of the user inter-faces to finally be able to offer scenarios for f-learning. More precisely, we do not offer instant scenarios applicable in any situation but a conception of how scenarios can be developed, what they should contain and what should be taken into consideration during the development. The outcome of this research also indicates some new problems regarding the roles identified in f-learning.
