— The purpose of the article is to present Internet-based studies at Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology (PJIIT). We author will discuss the current state of development and the conclusions which can be drawn from the 12 years of experience of running the studies through the Internet at PJIIT. In the first part we will describe the methodology we use and show the PJIIT’s e-learning platform EDU, developed by our own specialists. We will also discuss the specific issues connected with undergraduate and graduate Internet-based programs offered by PJIIT. One of the key features of education at PJIIT is the possibility of choosing between stationary and distance way of learning a subject. We will also present the use of the EDU system in teaching stationary courses because both the methodology and technology can be applied not only in distance education but to enhance traditional studies as well. It seems that the differences in stationary and distance education are not becoming more pronounced with the development of new technologies. On the contrary, we are now witnessing a convergence of the two modes of study. That applies especially to the possibility of using electronic lectures rather than coming to the ‘live’ ones, computer-based individual study which supplement in-class tutorials, and more varied channels of communication between students and lecturers.
