Abstract: In the last years, the IT evolutions have marked different areas, such as learning. Today, the online learning is at a very advanced level compared to what it was ten years ago. Hardware developments made possible to develop online learning anywhere around the world. Also, the number of involved people (in education or learning) is not important. Even if the hardware technologies have a greater role in the development of online learning, the software tools have also an important role, to improved the quality of learning. Currently, the websites must be responsive, to be visited from different devices. In this paper we focus on Bootstrap and how we can use it in order to improve the quality of learning, using websites or mobile applications.
