    Today the education is influenced by eLearning facilities and the accent lies in skills and (deep) understanding rather than in knowledge. In the paper survey of the present state of development of eLearning in Electrical Drives and Power Electronics (ED&PE) is given. Problem based and project based education are the keywords for modern education. This gives to the student a very good knowledge in individual disciplines while integrating the disciplines together to a useful whole of knowledge and skills is difficult. Integrating the disciplines and finding new challenging examples and teaching methods is illustrated on example of an electrical drive for a hybrid car. The paper summarizes the results achieved in the development of multimedia based eLearning tools in the field of electrical drives and power electronics as well as distance and virtual laboratories. Finally many challenges for future development of the eLearning are listed.
