The Danish water sector needs competence development and the number of international students enrolled in at DTU Environment is increasing. Based on their different backgrounds there is a clear need for adaptation and development of the existing courses. In response, DTU Environment has created an e-learning platform called Water Education, based on the platform Moodle. It is scheduled to be operational in 2011. Based on the experiences so far, it can be concluded that in some areas major time savings can be obtained and increased learning has been documented compared to a traditional classroom teaching on the same topic.
