The ELLEIEC ERASMUS thematic network runs from October 2008, and it will finish in to September 2011. This project deals with several aspects linked to LifeLong Learning (LLL) in Electrical and Information Engineering in Europe. One of the actions of the project is to set some ICN (International Curricula Networks) in some disciplines (specialties in EIE) and levels (Bachelor or Master) aiming at defining the necessary learning outcomes for some curricula. The definition of these learning outcomes defined and agreed at the European level by the ICNs, can be used for AEL (Accreditation of Experience Learning) by European workers who want to validate some diploma, corresponding to their actual knowledge and skills. AEL could be partial, so it is crucial to have the possibility, for workers who need it, to validate some modules, prepared either in a classical class or remotely. The modules (or pieces of modules) which are available remotely to students, and agreed by the partners of the ICN, are called IM (International Modules). In this paper we also describe a case study based in a piece of module, denoted as bit sized module, about Internet security. This bit sized module is a part of a bigger one in the Professional Bachelor's Degree in Computer Networks and Telecommunications taught at the University Joseph Fourier in Grenoble since September 2007.
