Abstract [en]

Ethical competence is an important precondition when people are to respond to moral problem situations as efficiently as possible. In these situations it is not easy to make choices and decisions, especially when many stakeholders are involved with various opinions and interests.

The purpose of this thesis was to generate a web-based support tool to train and promote ethical competence of the users of this tool.

We first created a theoretical basis by studying the major theories of ethics in general and ethical competence in particular. The importance of ethical competence and its main subject, namely, the autonomy in the theoretical part described and specified. In addition has the practical ethical reflection over morality preferred and characterized to the classical ethical passivity over morality. We have also preferred and characterized the autonomous thinking to the heteronomous one.

Based on the theoretical base a prototype tool to support the training of ethical competence was designed and developed. The prototype tool was chosen to be designed in the learning platform Moodle. The method of training ethical competence with the tool is through discussion forums by applying some exercises of the property to increase ethical awareness and autonomous thinking.

An IT support tool for training ethical competence has successfully been created. This ethical place suits users who have the interest of discussing ethical competence and its different aspects. Since this is the first version of this tool, it should be evaluated further in the future, which also gives the possibility to develop the tool further.
