In the paper, some interesting findings related to the introduction and use of e-classroom at the Faculty of Management (FM) is presented. The course was carried out in the e-classroom for fulltime and part-time students. The blended learning approach was used as an e-learning model. The teacher's assessments were based on students' weekly activities and achievements. Differences between groups of students and the differences caused by using a different blended learning approach will be presented as well. Beside the differences which were observed, some common findings were found, namely the introduction of innovative learning methods was appreciated by students, as well as the support of the well prepared tutor. Therefore further activities regarding the introduction and use of e-learning should be carried out. Online training courses for teachers and tutors should be organized and further research regarding the impact of e-classroom usage on all stakeholders in e-learning should be done.
