The specific objectives of the paper are: validation of the theoretical model for strategic planning of e-learning implementation by means of factor analysis, presentation of the structure of AHP and ANP models for decision making about e-learning implementation, comparison between developed AHP and ANP models, analysis of the results of group decision making supported by sw TeamEC2000 based on AHP model and the results of decision making supported by sw Super Decisions 1.6.0. based on ANP model.
The models can be applied at the course level, for the group of courses (department level) or at the study program (faculty level). At the same time the proposed models are useful for structuring discussion on strategic decisions on e-learning implementation at the university level. Our aim is to analyze and identify advantages and disadvantages of using different models and tools in the process of decision making about e-learning at different organizational levels.
