Information and communication technologies currently provide many incentives for the development of the educational process not only at the application, but also at the theoretical level. The very process of integrating these technologies into teaching, sometimes called simply the electronic learning (e-learning), however, was no one-off and had stemmed from several different theories of learning, determining the different levels and methods of use. From this perspective, therefore, the integration of ICT into the educational process emphasized the theory of programmed learning, cognitive theory, and the theory of constructivist learning, respectively, to the latest theory of connectivism, emphasizing the use of social networks in education.
The submitted article presents connections between the particular theories of learning and the possibilities of support from information and communication technologies, with particular focus on the issues of distance education, implemented by e-learning.
