Abstract

This article presents the results of a pilot research about interaction between e-learning/teaching paradigms and “classical” ones, where a “human” teacher is the central element. With other words, we analyzed relation between e-teacher and the human one. Because the presented results are gained in a pilot research and so the sample was relatively small, we would like to show how, with the help of statistical methods the reliability of the results can be increased. In our research work we developed different tools and with this pilot research we would like to test, if this tools:
• are precisely enough and specially if they
• give us enough reliable results.
Results of our research in this paper will point out two important conclusions, namely:
1. the students need (human) teacher and e-material (or e-teacher/tutor) is simply not enough, especially if we would like to reach higher cognitive, long lasting knowledge, and
2. with appropriate selected statistical methods, also with small sample, we can obtain enough reliable results.
