Abstract

The present time is significantly influenced by the development of information and communication technology, that allows us to access a huge amount of information and widen our possibilities. Using advanced digital technology has become an essential tool of advancement in every branch. Students consider ICT as a commonplace, as an integral part of their lives. The organization of the study is influenced by this fact, for example, consultations are agreed through email correspondence, submitting of assignments also works on an online basis.

The biggest focus of Human-computer interaction (HCI) as a multidomain discipline is put on a user interface. The interconnection with IT science world shall be obvious. We even today in times of modern technologies, even better computers and cell phones know, or at least suspect, that there is always something remaining for improving. We aim to mediate the communication between human and computer in such a way, that it would be as most intuitive and natural.

Students consider ICT as a commonplace, as an integral part of their lives. The organization of the study is influenced by this fact, for example, consultations are agreed through email correspondence, submitting of assignments also works on an online basis. We tried to explore the current state of the use of multimedia in teaching and learning with research. We focused primarily on what devices students use most frequently. To identify the relationship of students to ICT and to determine students’ views on teaching supported by ICT, we used the method of a questionnaire in such a process. The paper brings a short reference to another grasp of the problematic nature of effectiveness in an educational process. The final part of the paper deals with the possible effectiveness of eLearning which may – under certain circumstances - be a bit higher than the effectiveness of face to face teaching.
