Abstract

The contribution deals with a short history of the usage of personal computers in teaching of physics at the Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology (FCHFT) of Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. At first, computers were used in our faculty laboratory, as well as in seminars in special computer rooms where we tested the level of acquirement of the subject matter. Then step by step the miscellaneous multimedia tools were introduced also into physics lectures. What were the goals we wanted to achieve by usage of multimedia didactic tools in teaching-learning process? These aims were - to enliven an interest in physics, to improve the clarity of teaching.
The response of students on such kind of teaching process has been studied too. We have prepared student's opinion questionnaire to find out a feedback and monitor if our aims and intentions were fulfilled. The questionnaire was anonymous and was administered at the end of the winter term of the academic year 2006/2007. Results of this survey will be analysed at the end of this article. The new impulses and conclusions of this survey will be implemented in our further pedagogical practice.
