Towards a European Credit Transfer System for Networked
Abstract: In this paper an ECTS system for Network
Learning (ECTS-NL) is proposed as the framework for developing Network
Learning courses and studies. After a short introduction to Network Learning
and the ECTS system, the necessary extensions and modifications are made
to the classical ECTS system, to create an ECTS-NL system that is
both capable to provide the underlying structure for developing NL-courses
and is also flexible to cope with NL-courses provided by different
universities of different countries. The Top-Down approach to the allocation
of credits was chosen. In the paper the structure of the proposed ECTS-NL
is presented, giving explanations for every ECTS-NL field. The benefits
of the new ECTS-NL system are discussed and possible uses are proposed.
