Knowledge is only the basis of the preferred core competencies of the individual and may not be sufficiently beneficial for individuals, even if they were associated with other components of competences. Acquiring key competencies is a life-long process. In order for these competencies to be developed qualitatively, we need to achieve a quality education system.

In most countries of the world, the trend is to create expectations for the result of the schools’ work, we can say standards, which could be regularly controlled. From most of the products, it is required to answer to predetermined standards, and these standards or norms are strictly controlled. In schools, they do not do it. Nobody guaranteed, that the student of that school in which he learns the knowledge, skills, etc. The goal of this work is to demonstrate the importance of information and communication technologies in the educational process as one of the most important tools for enhancing the quality of education. Information and communication technologies play an important role in university studies.  The aim of education will shift to improve the skill of learning, and critical thinking of the learner, improve the ability to communicate and use information and communication technologies as well as gather, analyse and use information effectively and efficiently.
