This master thesis reports on the design and development of competence development activities for mobile people with implications from experiences from a stationary setting. The Viktoria Institute has previously successfully worked with multimedia scenarios as a form for learning, but there also were drawbacks. Mostly regarding the users ability to find time and opportunity for the activities even though the scenario only requires that the participants attend for about three hours each session. Hence, we want to enable spatially distributed professionals to take part in collaborative learning in a more opportunistic way. We believe that the key is to design the multimedia scenarios to help structure and facilitate competence development for individuals and groups distributed both in time and space. We want to offer possibilities for mobile professionals to engage in continuous mobile competence development. This thesis reports upon the construction of an experiential environment designed to address the problems mentioned above: the Mobile Scenarios Demonstrator (MSD)
