J. Papula

Comenius University in Bratislava, Faculty of Management (SLOVAKIA)
The evolution of information and communication technologies is influenced by trends, which should be perceived and reflected. This also applies to e-learning in support of higher education. Web-based services, such as Software as a Service or Cloud Computing, and also the development of mobile devices and mobile internet, and the development of modern format for distributing web content, are some of the trends that affect our everyday lives. Change in the access to electronic content changes also the way it is consumed. A clear trend is showed by fast expanding of the Massive Open Online Courses. Compared with these simple and purposeful portals, the traditional e-learning portals for universities seem to be outdated and cluttered. This paper is devoted to reason and benefits obtained from the transition from the most widely used Open Source LMS Moodle to innovative new cloud solution iSmart. This paper also presents the perception of the change by the students of the Faculty of Management at Comenius University in Bratislava. Special view is also dedicated to the real benefits of e-learning, which is proven by a sample of students from compulsory subject "Controlling". Presented are the results of the review on how continuous learning in e-learning iSmart influenced the final grades. The purpose of the article is to point not only on the advanced technology in e-learning, but also on the need of a methodological framework for development and operation of e-learning courses.
