This study examines the student teachers’ satisfaction with e-learning science courses “Ecological education” and “Didactics of natural sciences in primary school” in a public university in Bulgaria. Richard R. Aman’s satisfaction questionnaire was used to obtain data, regarding quality factors of satisfaction. These factors were integrated in the Quality concept for development of student teachers’ satisfaction, based on building of their professional competencies. The results of analysis reveal that professional-competent student teachers feel satisfy with science courses, because they are successful. However, some of students would feel more satisfied, if they could get additional technological help and support.
