Paper describes the needs, character and creation of an educational electronic course for subject The Logic as a support for teaching in humanity oriented university studies.
Culture of logical thinking is not a native attribute. It forms itself only on process of knowledge, thinking and logics study. In the education base in field of informatics or mediamathics, Logic is the only science connecting mathematics, informatics and humanities education. Logic is a tool for work with complicated formal concepts and it will be useful only when higher mathematic and informal features will be well synchronized in it.
There exist logical anomalies that can be identified with certain skills and knowledge of Logic only. In certain measure mathematics replaced this missing part in education. But there might be some amount of students preferring humanities who have to confide in intuition (natural logic). Although man has a native ability of inference but this native intuition cannot find solution all the time or it offers a wrong one. Right here we see the necessity of logic exercises and logic learning.
Therefore we decided to create an electronic educational course for subject The Logic lectured in second degree of bachelor study program Mediamatics and cultural Heritage.
Electronic educational course, Logic, e-learning.
