The paper presented deals with the problems and challenges occurring during the education and training of the new digital generation of students. These problems are connected mainly with the difficulties of the perception and adoption of the teaching material. These predicaments are due to the different way of thinking and perception of the digital students. Therefore, the classical way of teaching is not always successful. This new situation imposes changes in teaching methodology, introducing of new interactive technologies and creating new teaching models. The objective of the research is to investigate the impact of the application of video games, graphical representations and sound effects, appropriately created animations and their combination in complete multimedia products. Special mobile applications are elaborated and tested. Using such tools the authors aim to facilitate the students perception of the teaching materials delivered. Video games with elements of test control, visualization and animation turn out to be an interesting and innovative approach to the achievement of the authors aims: students acquisition of knowledge or skills and their rapid accumulation. During the investigation the authors have applied the following research methods: empirical, theoretical and diagnostic methods. The research results are presented precisely with tables, diagrams and pictures. A thorough analysis of the theoretical and experimental results is carried out. The discussion suggested includes conclusions and recommendations aiming to improve the quality of the education and training at University level.
