The aim of this paper is to show the main differences between distance and full-time teaching computer science at the university. One of the options to compare quality full-time and distance study is to compare the level of success completion of the courses. For comparison were used rate statistics in selected courses for Bachelor’s and Master’s studies of Computer Science, and in several academic years of full-time and distance study. The author shows the basic problems and possible solutions for addressing them. Like other research method was to use a questionnaire, which is determined by the use of electronic materials online.

Keywords: distance learning, computer science, Learning Management System, Moodle, university.
