eLearning -15 Years at Czech Universities

Authors: Petra Poulova, Miloslava Cerna, Ivana Simonova

Abstract: At the beginning of this millennium the European Commission announced eLearning to be a strategic plan for developing new trends in gradual and lifelong education. Analogous to other European countries also in the Czech Republic strong emphasis was put on education, particularly on improving competences in the field of ICT and foreign languages. Adequate changes reflecting these global tendencies in the last decade were run on all levels of the Czech educational system – from the primary to the tertiary level, including the lifelong education. These tendencies are strongly reflected in engineering education. Despite the starting problems in the last decade, eLearning has become a standard within the tertiary education. The eLearning forms of instruction at universities can be used in both gradual study programmes and lifelong education. eLearning can be applied in the distance study programmes, in the combined (part-time) form of instruction or supporting present lessons (blended learning).
