Abstract:The paper presents new approaches to the use of ICT in education at universities. E-Learning is expanding worldwide and is a form of learning that is really effective. The success of this education is due to interesting and modern e-learning courses for students that will interest them from the beginning of the course to the end. Students are so busy with school, personal life and work that learning through e-Learning will certainly appreciate. It is known from analyses of used systems abroad that Moodle and Blackboard are the most used e-Learning systems. Moodle is the preferred higher education system in Europe and Slovak universities use this system at different levels. University of Zilina and Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava have high-level of e-Learning. The Moodle system used by the University of Zilina is integrated into the education system. The paper presents suggestions for more effective use of e-Llearning, which are based on the survey conducted among students and on the examination of the system too. We suggested that teachers use a variety of activities offered by the system to improve teaching. By using the latest version, there are additional benefits that will simplify the work of students.
