Abstract

The article reveals for the first time the peculiarities of the educational process in Ukraine after the introduction of distance learning related to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is noted that the problem of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 is the most pressing in the modern world. Today, all educational institutions around the world are thinking about the problem of education during and after quarantine and how to get students back to school. Ukraine is no exception to this situation. In the context of the global coronavirus pandemic 2019-nCoV and the spread of infection throughout Ukraine, it is extremely important to ensure a quality educational process.

The study was conducted based on two leading educational institutions in Ukraine. The authors developed a Google questionnaire where, in addition to questions about the forms and means of distance education, the emphasis was on the management component. We found that the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the worldview of society in all directions, both in the educational environment and in social, economic, and psychological. They noted the fact that distance education both in the world and in Ukraine has its pros and cons. For example, the introduction of remote technologies depends primarily on the teacher's initiative to implement such technologies, as well as the desire of students to use them and the technical ability of both parties to use these technologies (because our country faces the problem of Internet coverage). We found that in the age of information technology, the level of communication, both interpersonal and with students, among respondents has not changed. We found that almost all teachers who took part in the survey believe that distance education does not give students practical skills or competencies after graduation. That is, an applicant who has received theoretical knowledge will not be able to put them into practice. In our study, we emphasize that distance education is more appropriate in terms of management, it gives educational institutions more opportunities for decentralization and optimization.

Keywords: Covid-19, education, information technologies, knowledge, university, distance education.
