Summary/Abstract: E-learning used to be characterized as the future of education. Now it becomes education’s present. It creates many new possibilities, but there appear new problems along with them. When looking for the best contemporary formula for distance learning, it is worth to refer to the pedagogy of culture. It influenced European pedagogical thought in the first half of 20th century, in Poland its height fell on the second half of the 20th century. Pedagogy of culture is a kind of pedagogical humanism, deeply rooted in European philosophical thought. In this context a man is a cultural person, that experiences and creates new values. The basis of education should be the contact with goods of culture, interiorization, creating new ideas and shaping personality. These ideals should light up the issues of distance learning, help formulate its long-term goals and plan how to shape students’ personality. Human values should be recognized the most important and basic, regardless of the form of learning.
