Abstract

Background:
The use of e-learning techniques in higher education is becoming ever more frequent. In some institutions, e-learning has completely replaced the traditional teaching methods, while in others it supplements classical courses.

Materials and methods:
The paper presents a study conducted in a member institution of the University of Ljubljana that provides public administration programmes. We analysed the relationship between the proportion of the course implemented in the Moodle e-learning platform and students’ performance on one hand and their satisfaction on the other.

Results:
The empirical findings reveal a positive correlation for both elements. The results can help decision-makers learn more about how to enhance students’ success and satisfaction using an e-learning platform.

Conclusions:
The results of our study indicate that the implementation of blended learning with a LMS platform Moodle at the Faculty of Administration resulted in a statistically significant increase in students’ effectiveness, measured by the average grade and the average number of admissions to the exams.
