The Web 2.0 technology is here – it has been created and offered to all branches of science. But has 'Learning 2.0' automatically arrived as well? We would not have made any progress beyond medieval medicine if we had not abandoned its paradigm that assumed that all diseases are based on imbalances in our blood. Improvement in the quality of medicine would be limited to searching for superior methods and forms of blood-letting. Is there any parallel to education? The heart of the changes includes divergence from a linearly coordinated system with teacher in the middle. Criteria system for the evaluation of the quality of education is diametrically different from the previous one. Individual criteria can be formulated exactly by copying changes indicated above, summarized under the veil of a change of paradigm of education.
