Education has dramatically changed thanks to the implementation of new technologies into a learning process in last years. Such education place higher demands on teachers since they must have not only good pedagogical skills but usually also good managerial and technical skills. Unfortunately, there are not many empirical studies addressing pragmatic issues such as the form of online study materials. Thus, the purpose of this article is to discover what kind of online study materials students prefer so that the teacher could adjust his/her online teaching materials to student’s needs.
