Distance learning technologies in foreign language teaching


Modern distance learning technologies offer unique opportunities for organizing the educational process. In the world practice distance education occupies more than 60% of the educational services market. However in Russia distance education has so far remained in low demand. The forced transition to the distance learning format contributed to the revision of the methodic potential of distance learning technologies and distance learning in general. In view of this, teachers had a lot of questions regarding the organization of feedback with the training group, the transfer of educational materials to distance education platforms, the implementation of performance monitoring and much more. The issue of developing the competence of foreign language teachers has become particularly relevant in the pedagogical environment. Due to the lack of appropriate skills teachers had to adapt to the new educational conditions and completely rebuild the educational process. The formation of an educational environment with the use of distance learning technologies in teaching a foreign language is a time requirement that needs a modern solution to the tasks set. We consider the terminological apparatus on the topic of the problem under study, determine the advantages and disadvantages of using these technologies, the forms of organizing distance learning as well as the content of the competence of a foreign language teacher at a university.
