Abstract:According to Spencer (1988), 83% of information is perceived visually, according to the method of receiving the information read will be remembered to the 10%, 20% listened, viewed 30%. This claim was strongly reflected in the educational process with the support of eLearning. In the past two academic years, we have among other things, taught students of supplementary pedagogical study at Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra within the Technology of Education how to use LMS Moodle (Learning Management System Moodle). The main reason was that in the original survey this tool to support the learning process was known only by 3 students. However, we consider it important to use methods of eLearning at all levels not only of university studies, but also at high schools. Teaching took place so that students applied new knowledge immediately into the formulation of their projects, which was the preparation of the support for the lesson. Moodle teaching was preceded by a lecture on the basic concepts of eLearning and on the methodology for creating e-learning materials. Before the end of the semester students completed the questionnaire (optional), where 75.6% of them pointed out that eLearning in education is considered an important part of teaching students, 22.2% of respondents consider it partially important, and only 1% as unimportant. 62.2% can imagine that the LMS will be used in teaching their subjects in high school. It is important to know the reasons for these considerations, however we did not search for them in this phase of study.
Keywords: e-learning, Learning Management System, questionnaire, Technology of Education.
