The aim of the study is to examine how gifted students are stimulated to use e-learning for academic achievement. The main questions to which an answer is sought in this context are: What types of activities do gifted students use in e-learning?How do students evaluate the adequacy of ICT resources for their academic achievements so far? What are the relationships between the use of ICT for learning and the personality traits, self-esteem, and motivational strategies of gifted people? The theoretical context consists of concepts of self-regulation, new concepts of intelligence - self-management of intellectual processes - Sternberg, emancipatory didactics.The research has used the method of systematic, non-experimental observation, and as instruments, a battery of questionnaires: (PSIKT) Protocol on students' self-perception about the importance and use of ICT and e-learning to stimulate students towards academic achievements—made for this research; Questionnaire of Motivation for Learning (LLOS-IEA), SMS-Scale of Motivational Strategies, Inventory of Competencies for Memory and Reasoning (MARCI-Stankov & Crawford), and Personality Traits (BFIIV). Metric characteristics of the instruments: Krombach's (alfa) for parts of the battery ranges from 0.62 to 0.83. It was used as a convenience sample, consisting of 687 students from the universities of Belgrade, Novi Sad and Niš (within this number, 127 are academically gifted, with an average grade above 9.00). Basic findings: When compared to other students, academically gifted students focus more on expanding their knowledge based on their interests, research work, and interactive self-evaluation tests in e-learning. Using ICT for learning and academic success is closely related to students' personal characteristics (personality traits, self-confidence, motivation). Gifted students have stronger self-confidence, motivation, and personality traits than other students.
