The present study aims at highlighting the importance of using the computer in the instruction process. The use of the classical educational means cannot be eliminated, but they must be blended and combined with the utilities offered by the computer and the peripherals, which make teaching, learning and evaluation much easier. The computerized society of recent years has compelled the use of computers in the teaching process. Computer-assisted instruction has become one of the basic teaching methods in the modern teaching process. The computer - the hardware component is used as technical support, and the software - the software component is used as informational support. The computer facilitates the understanding of the new concepts that the learner finds harder to get closer to. This is particularly possible because it provides both visual and auditory support in learning and it also makes interactivity possible. The learner not only listens to the information s/he needs to keep in mind, but with the help of some educational software s/he has the opportunity to discover on his/ her own some aspects and to intervene in the learning process. The computer used in learning helps enhance the information. Theoretical information is not enough for learning, and the learner needs situations in order to apply the knowledge s/he has learned. That is why most educational games contain a whole series of exercises where the learner defines his/ her knowledge.
