The aim of the contribution is to present our experience gained in teaching organized in such a way that all processes connected with teaching were supported by computers and communication technologies.

The authors characterize the results of their own pedagogical research, which was conducted with the idea of using a computer and available computer networks to get more active students, who will be involved in the teaching process. Moreover, they obtain immediate feedback about their knowledge and more information on the most recent development in their relevant field of interest.

The starting point for our research was an analysis of previously published studies of other authors, who were focused in a very detailed way on the various parts of the educational process; for instance, their attention was directed on the preparation of teaching content. However, they do not address the activation of students in the course of the study.

In contrast, the authors of the submitted contribution recommend that the whole process, i.e. from the preparation of training content to the final exam, is also about the promotion of active attitude of students who get the immediate feedback about the relevant topic and new knowledge. They were encouraged to actively participate in special student network and share their views in the form of "chats". The authors also used the computers for the final knowledge testing of their students.

Research has shown that the students use their computers in their private activities primarily for social networking. And sharing information about finding, sorting, and presenting technical and economic information can help them in a number of cases. On the other side, the wider application of the research results is restricted because not everyone has laptop, there is not an obligation to attend lessons with computer, and the computer-equipped auditoriums are limited in number.

The result was created within the project IGA No. 7773 entitled „Current Trends in the Development of Financial Markets“ using institutional support for the long term conceptual development of the research organization of the University of Finance and Administration.
