The paper will describe the features and show advantages of process orientation in all phases of university course design and implementation applied in an introductory course on environmental science at Masaryk University, Faculty of Informatics in Brno, Czech Republic. It will demonstrate the principles of process-oriented learning design and its support in the open-source based Medusy project. Primarily, it will show the integrated approach to learning process design, tooling, runtime environment, and learning process pattern repository.
