Abstract: Students in higher education have to use many tools of the information-communication technology (ICT). The various types of teaching and learning methods require computer skills on many fields. Sometimes we see that students have problems in handling, managing the ICT tools, because they have not enough knowledge on these fields. In this paper we examine the ways of harmonization of skills that electronic materials require and the students’ knowledge on the field of using electronic learning materials in higher education. We show the result of a survey on the competences on using e-curricula, on the affinities of using information technology among the first-year students before they start their study at our university. The questionnaire was filled by four thousand six hundred students at the beginning of their studies at University of Debrecen, Hungary.
