    Abstract

    In the thesis we conducted a research about massive open online courses (MOOCs) that target the topic of safe Internet use which is getting more and more important in this age of digital technology. Our emphasis was on the MOOCs aimed at Slovenian primary school students, since kids start using devices like smart phones and computers that have web access at an early age and Internet security is most definitely a topic they need to learn about. Computer and informational science is an area that is still very neglected in Slovenian schools and it still hasn't become a mandatory course as it should. With this kind of courses students would gain at least basic knowledge they necessarily need for their active and safe participation on the World Wide Web. We wanted to see how the before mentioned MOOCs will fare amidst the students of primary school as we want the education of students to take the most effective way. The results of our research show that with the right kind of motivation and students' active work, MOOCs can be a suitable and effective way of education.
