Abstract

Distance learning is not a new way of learning, but its methodology radically changed over last twenty years with the rapid development of personal computers and Internet as a global network. Almost every European country has some form of distance education, but there is a huge difference between western and eastern countries. Western countries have a long history of distance learning opposite to eastern countries which started to develop this form of learning after major changes in political views. This paper aims to present the constraints of this educational model and the current state of distance learning development in all V4 countries, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland and the Republic of Serbia. Distance learning is not a new concept of education, but despite a large number of benefits, the possibilities of this form of education are not sufficiently exploited. SME sector has increasing significance in modern economy and employees in this sector make up an increasing share of total employment in most countries. The main characteristic of distance learning suggests that this is a very convenient way for additional education of employees, but there are a number of barriers that cause low interest. Europe has done a lot to establish the quality standards of distance learning, particularly in higher education, with most important Bologna process. The aim of this paper is to point out some achievements in Europe in the field of distance learning for employees in small and medium-sized enterprises. Also, short research on this subject in the Republic of Serbia will be presented.
