Abstract

In this paper Web-based courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry developed within an European project are presented. The project is in the framework of the programme SOCRATES 2005–2007 of the European Community. The collaboration involves seven universities from four countries – France, Spain, Belgium and Bulgaria in an active joint work. Within the project some studies on the potential changes in education following the ICT revolution are being conducted. The main research aspects are related to: pedagogic effectiveness of the ICT-based learning of mathematics and sciences with activity-based approach and simulations; the change in educational mission from instruction to provision of methods for personal learning; the transition from objective to constructed knowledge.
