Ukrainian Society and Сovid-19: the Influence of the Pandemic on Educational Processes in Higher School

Liliia Rebukha, Vira Polishchuk


The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is one of the global problems of humankind and has a significant influence on political, socio-economic and educational processes. It is noted that the social isolation and the social distance of the teachers and students of the institutions of higher education has transformed the ways and habits of their lives due to the long quarantine events. The security measures caused new features of the educational environment. The distance learning has been actualized as a possible way and an important form of the distance education. The institutions of higher education of Ukraine have rapidly developed and formed their own approaches to the educational process in the last two months (pandemic). Therefore, the distance learning, which maintains a balance between the theoretical and the practically oriented training of the future specialists, is technically organized at Ternopil National Economic University. The organization of the education on the modern online platform “Moodle”, which is directed at effective the providing active parity education in the distance format, is described. The indicators (the effectiveness, the accessibility, the resource intensity, the promptness, the democracy in communication, the integrative software) of the quality assessment of implementation of the distance learning in the educational process are specified and identified within the platform.

It was concluded that each Ukrainian student and teacher underwent a reassessment of their own educational values in the conditions of self-isolation: a virtual educational environment can never replace the direct educational contact of a teacher and students in a teaching audience.
