The team of Perm University teachers visited the University of Reading (UK) for the purpose of studying on a short course in Computer Based Technologies. The experience of English colleagues in using author´s sites and e-mail helped us to stimulate using Internet-technologies in organizing student scientific work and distant teaching / learning process.
In the University of Reading each student and teacher have a free access to computers to communicate via e-mail while at Perm University not all students are ready to use e-mail to communicate with the teacher.
To get the process going each student who needed it was given an individual electronic address. Besides, everyone was given a pattern of electronic letter registration since because of the differences in post programme adjustment and servers the texts written in Cyrillic alphabet can be presented by unreadable symbols. To avoid it, the text is duplicated by the attached RTF file.
Example of electronic letter registration:

The offered electronic registration pattern helps to avoid the loss of information on the intensification of teaching process with the usage of Computer Based Technologies.
The authors are grateful to Dr. Trevor C. Davies (University of Reading) for providing consultations and Geological Faculty of Perm State University for the support of our participation in the project of the Russian and European Academies of Natural History.
