Abstracts:

Information and communications technology (ICT) is implemented in almost all areas of life and the educational process is no exception. ICT serves as support to teachers in their instruction, and through the use of various systems based on electronic technology during learning and teaching we obtain a completely new learning paradigm – e-learning. E-learning is implemented in e-learning systems, and with well-formed and delivered educational materials it provides an opportunity for online and hybrid learning, teaching and testing of students’ knowledge. This research deals with instructional design in the e-learning systems and its application in xTEx-Sys and Moodle systems. Guided by the theoretical background of the subject, we have conducted empirical research and performed experiments with a group of pupils in the second grade of primary school. Results have shown that students have positive attitude toward systems Moodle and xTEx-Sys. This thesis confirms that the role of a teacher is not diminished by this mean of lecturing, instead it grows because a teacher becomes a mentor and a moderator of the whole process, and a student, as an active participant of the instruction, becomes responsible for her/his own learning process.
