Abstract: In this work we present a new approach in teaching the subject Programmable logic devices with the use of Moodle platform. A special accent is put on implementation of a multimedia laboratory guide, the contents and conception of which facilitate realization of practical tasks related to designing, implementation and testing of hardware in the development environment Quartus II, which includes a software package and UP2 development system and is used in laboratory exercises in the third grade of basic studies at College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in Belgrade. Specific characteristics of the multimedia laboratory guide lie in a possibility of parallel operation of a video tutorial and real software package, with full simulation of the hardware environment for design testing.

Keywords: Electronic learning, programmable logic devices, multimedia laboratory guide.
