Abstract

 It is important to put stress on a current and innovative teaching and thus leading subjects for students nowadays. This is valid for universities primary. An example of conducting the subject „HPC and Grid Architecture“ in the environment MOODLE is introduced in the article. After making research among students who had passed this subject and after making comparison with other possibilities that are available online, the output was made. Issues discussed are focused on its interesting thing, the way of lecture and availability of subject´s content.
