Online study mode for most structural units of the Crimean Federal University has not become something unusual. Many lecturers have been trying to apply state-of-the-art digital technologies in their practice for more than a year. Thus, at the Department of Pedagogical Excellence of Elementary School Teachers and Teachers of Pre-School Institutions of the Institute of Pedagogy, Psychology and Inclusive Education of the Humanitarian and Pedagogical Academy in the World Wide Web used to work only with extramural students. But the pandemic has made its adjustments, and the experience has been extended to all students.
The Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department of Pedagogical Excellence of Elementary School Teachers and Teachers of Pre-School Institutions Elzara Koikova uses various platforms, messengers and even applications in her work. The main link between the teacher and the students has become the social network VKontakte, where there are groups for each academic group on each subject. The SKYPE program allows to hold online lectures and answer students’ clarification questions.
Such an innovative approach to their education has been appreciated by students of the Humanitarian and Pedagogical Academy. After all, thanks to technical capabilities, those who are learning have become not just passive listeners, they are active participants in the process.
Despite all the advantages of studying outside the university there are also some disadvantages. In general, they are of a technical nature, whether it is a signal quality or periodic computer failures, both students and lecturers complain. At the same time all are united in the same desire – quickly to return to meetings in the real rather than virtual world.
