Web-based performance-centred educational system is an integrated environment, which is available via Internet and is structured to provide individualized online access to the full range of information, guidance, advice, data, images, tools and software to permit the user to perform a task. This system is Internet-based Performance Support System with Educational Elements (IPSS_EE). IPSS_EE was developed under a project within Socrates/Minerva European Programme. The performance-centred approach of thinking up an educational system offers new opportunities for the educational and training organizations and calls principle changes in the instructional design of course materials. Developed environment gives up the course designers and teachers a possibility to create IPSS_EE without knowing the theory and organisation behind performance-centred approach. The design, functional and interface model of the Web-system is presented. The main screens from the prototype are shown with examples from course “Electrostatics”, which has been designed and developed in IPSS_EE environment for students from physics-engineering speciality. Experimental design of pilot test of IPSS_EE is described.
