Abstract

This paper is based on theoretical and empirical researchthat was aimed at presenting e-learning as a socio-cultural system phenomenon in university studies with the emphasis on elements to be influenced and, also, on influencing elements. Methods of critical literature analysis and empirical qualitative and quantitative studies were employed for this extensive study (covering 2006-2013). however, in this paper just few aspects are analyzed, and just two of the methods applied (and data they resulted in) are presented. The core objective is to help participants to become active members in the process, to overcome fears and evolve: from a recipient, user, into an active agent of the process. Both teachers and students should be encouraged and supported in order to become active, creative and creating participants of contemporary e-learning. Study revealed, that just a small fraction of opportunities available today is being used by university community members (teachers, and, surprisingly, students)).
