    Nowadays, the use of computers is becoming almost a necessity. The information and communications technology in this field made major steps which are successfully used in school for the benefit of students. New products have many advantages over conventional modes of education. The methods of teaching are interesting to young people and will further motivate that they will be concentrated in lessons, happy to walk to school and they will remember more learning material. With the introduction of modern technical and technological devices, learning material becomes more interesting, easier and more receptive to remember. All described can be achieved by introducing education using the Internet. This means not only introducing the latest techniques and technology in the curriculum but also learning online, distance learning, where we lower the education by shortening the journey to the place of schooling, and so we have more free time. From a classical education is distinguished by the fact that students are not in personal contact or in the same room with the teacher but they communicate with him online. Diploma Thesis deals with a webinar, a web-based seminar, which in Slovenian language is termed as “spletinar”, short for “spletni seminar”. We explain the expression webinar together with its history. Also listed are the tools necessary for preparing a webinar, amongst which there are some of the most popular (Dimdim, Yugma, GoToWebinar, ReadyTalk). They are shortly described, whereas Adobe Acrobat Connect, which was used for this webinar, is presented in detail. We explore a number of questions that a lecturer should consider prior to carrying out an effective webinar. They are chronologically sequenced: before, during and after the webinar. Then follows a description of how a webinar on the topic of perpendicular projection was applied in class 7 at the school subject Design and Technology. Execution of webinars depends on the use of the Internet in class. A questionnaire on the actual usage of Internet in class was given to pupils from classes 6 to 9 in the primary school. The analysis gives insight into the use and self-assessment of the Information Technology knowledge, distance learning, webinar and pupils’ interests for web-based learning.
