English abstract:
There is still very little research about students´ attitudes about elearning. Such information seems to be necessary for a successful implementation of e-learning. Current research indicates that main advantages of e-learning are its flexibility and the provision of online learning material. A major drawback, as perceived by the students, is the lack of personal relationships.We conducted two focus groups to clarify these issues (N=54). The study supported the results from the literature. In addition, we found a few controversial issues as, e.g., preference for lectures/textbooks and tight schedules vs. preference for online learning and few deadlines. Another controversial issue was electronic assessment.
