This paper presents the examples (cases) of integration of knowledge management techniques – the community of practice and eLearning – into competence-developing virtual learning environment. Clear e-course objectives and learning trajectories with challenges that correspond to the level of knowledge and skills of participants actualize the need for problem-solving through critical thinking. Space for effective communication, collaboration and co-creation fosters creativity and leadership. Findings of the described successful e-course indicate that 40% participants feel arousal, ‘drive’ and have positive memorable learning experience, while every fourth learner feels ‘actively immersed’ in virtual learning environment.
