Abstract

The last 10 years National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University develops e-books, video lectures, training modules and courses based on different digital educational platforms. We offered a new web-course on a Moodle platform and added it to everyday classes. The comparison shows the growing level of students' activity during the semester when they use b-learning. An average grade in semester is 6.8 in 10 point scale for hybrid form in comparison with 6.1 for traditional one. However, the level of exam preparation is lower. Number of students who failed the exam is bigger. But correlation analysis shows a closer connection of grades in semester with the exam grade for b-learning and equal connection between grades in semester and final grade. Students were asked in three dimensions: preferences, profit and necessity to teacher's help. Survey shows students' interest in b-learning. Generally, teachers are satisfied with the new b-learning course and the results of its using.
