Abstract

The world of education is continuously changing. New information and communication technologies have appeared as an important component of the actual teaching/learning strategies. We arrived into a new era, called e-Learning period. Nowadays, e-Learning has become a viable alternative to traditional methods, adopted by many educational institutions, especially because of the advantages offered by the possibility of continuous training.


In Romania, these teaching/learning strategies face rapid development. This paper presents a software-tool developed in Delphi environment – PowerFee – used for periodical training and testing students via Internet. According to intern rules of the department, all students must accomplish a given number of training-tests every semester, to ensure the proper assimilation of the new information. To optimize this process, the program can be reached via local network using a user name and password. A comparison between results obtained by classical teaching/learning methods and ones achieved by modern e-Learning techniques is presented.
