Traditional learning and teaching methods are still an integral part of many academic institutions. Will the implementation of e-learning material as an additional resource to normal lectures have an effect on a student's academic success? Senior students enrolled for the Network Systems III module at the Vaal University of Technology (VUT) were introduced to e-learning material. A variety of different learning styles was combined to prepare the e-learning material. The activities of individual students with the e-learning material were recorded using the Moodle learner management system. An empirical assessment of the log activities of all the students who used the e-learning content was done. Quantitative data concerning Moodle logs, time spent on learning material, including test and examination results, were analysed and compared to find possible correlations.
