Electronic Learning in Educational Process: Problems and Perspectives



The paper describes the preconditions and specifics of electronic learning resources in Russian universities and focuses on the priorities in the development of electronic education. As it is revealed, there are certain problems with employing electronic resources in mixed forms of learning, i.e. when such resources are only a part of the educational process, not a complete substitute. The paper explores the advantages and shortcomings of electronic learning in full-time instruction basing on the outcomes of a survey for students and teachers carried out in one the Russian universities. These outcomes help to assess the effectiveness of electronic learning and further perspectives of mixed forms of instruction. The paper finally provides some recommendations on how to increase the effectiveness of electronic learning by means of its integration with traditional technologies in education.
