First is the use of presentations. The main tool for making presentations is “Power Point” program. The second area is the application of multimedia capabilities of the Internet. Basically, the following resources are considered:  "Album" (scrapbook), the "Treasure Hunt", the problem statement (subject sampler), a list of  subject references (hotlist), forum. The third area represented in the article contains an analysis of blogs technology in teaching and learning the English language. This section describes different types of blogs, showing the blogs potential in the increase of computer literacy and proficiency in English. From the above analysis we can conclude that the multimedia technologies in education are used inefficiently. Using the computer should not be something artificial.
