The development of computing and computer networks and the emergence of new software programs have contributed to the entrence of information and communication technology in education.
This paper deals with a topical issue of modern education like the integration of eLearning in the lessons.
We approached theoretical and practical applications used to study elementary logic gates.
The paper highlights the role of eLearning in digital electronic circuit simulation, to improve the quality of the educational process.
To provide attractive lesson to the students from technical profile - electronics and automation domein-, students who study in highschool "Basics of digital electronics" module, we created a system of lessons and an electronic course support for the study of logic gates.
We wanted to develop student's both abilities, one covered by this module "The use of logic integrated circuits (Ics)" and other one to develop student's computer skills.
Structured as a website developed using HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the course covers:
-theoretical knowledge about basic logic gates: AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, XOR (symbols, the logic function associated, truth table);
-the implementation of logic functions with logic gates;
-videos with practical works made with the educational kit NX-100plus and with Junior Digital Circuit experiment board;
-the interconection of logic integrated circuits, the test, verification and circuit simulation with the educational program "Circuit Maker";
-assesment tests to verify the achievement skills;
-references for documentation and information.
For education and effective training it is required to use both: eLearning and Traditional educational methods.
