The main topic of this paper is the development of a web-based application that helps children to learn the one-digit multiplication table. The developed application supports individual learning process of the pupils and also provides the teachers with the possibility to intervene according to the analysis of users’ answers. The application uses modern technologies in order to offer high performance and availability to the users. The system also provides an interface for mobile clients, which present the questions and the processed data in different forms. The answers of the pupils, as well as other gathered data from the application show interesting results related to the participation and learning improvement.
