Quality of Higher Education, v5 p132-151 2008

The article analyzes and assesses factors that have impact upon the quality of eTeaching/learning technologies in higher education; it is on their basis that the concept of eTeaching/learning quality is denied. Research data about the students' motives in choosing various teaching/learning technologies for the development of their competence are presented together with teacher possibilities to create interactive virtual environments that motivate eTeaching/learning. The obtained research revealed that verbal and interactive technologies based on explanatory illustrational method are more favoured by both students and teachers who aim at study quality. Higher education teachers, aiming at achieving better eTeaching/learning quality, integrate the elements of these technologies into traditional methodologies, developing a blended distance education model.
