Keywords:education challenges, research, distance learning, hybrid education, advantages of distance education, disadvantages of distance education, conceptual approach, e-course, media platform, e-learning technologies
Today's education faces modern challenges in the context of profound methodological and content changes in the world. Global realities have a fundamental impact on education processes, research and projected outcomes. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and thanks to the development of information technologies, the learning process of higher education is currently organized in a hybrid manner, with combination of face-to-face and distance learning modalities. We were somewhat prepared for it, because yet in 2010, the Government of Armenia had adopted a decision to approve the procedure for distance learning of Higher, Postgraduate and Vocational education specialties (Government of the RA – Hayastani Hanrapetutyun karavarutyan voroshumy. 2010).
In order to understand the current issues of distance education and aiming to help to improve the process in the context of hybrid education, we conducted research and explored the process of organization of distance learning from different perspectives, tested its effectiveness and identified various problems at Khachatur Abovian Armenian State Pedagogical University?
