Abstract

Abstract Due to rapid technological progress the world of education is continuously changing. In recent decades, the use of the Internet, together with new information and communication technologies, has become an important component of teaching/learning strategies in universities. Today, e-Learning has become a viable alternative to traditional methods, and adopted by many educational institutions, especially because of the advantages offered by the possibility of continuous training. In Romania, these new teaching/learning strategies face rapid development. In the Romanian academic environment, e-Learning is predicted to be an excellent tool. Initially, this concept has replaced the classical methodology of distance education, with materials written on CDs. Further, the possibility of connecting via the Internet has facilitated the development of collaborative environments, virtual classrooms, and synchronous and asynchronous training. Our study shows that modern teaching/learning methods (e-Learning) can achieve results at least as good as those obtained by traditional techniques.
