Such virtual environment is a combination of the usage of digital technologies and tools in teaching and learning that can improve the efficiency of the English language learning process. Since the digital environment is not limited to time or attached to a place, it is more flexible, more individualized and more mobile than traditional forms of education. An example of a digital environment is presented on the LMS Moodle. The advantages of using this platform are listed in the work. The research uses several methodological tools, namely: analysis, synthesis, comparison, abstraction and deduction. The Maritime English course is one of the first steps for cadets of the ship -engineering department on the way for building communicative competence. Today, the labor market requires a competent graduator who is able to perform his duties in the engine room. Qualified ship - engineers must have adequate knowledge of English language for a specific purpose, for communication in an international crew. A variety of e-course tools are used to make their communication clear and understandable. The article also provides examples of H5P tasks (advent calendars, audio recordings, flipping text cards, instant feedback dictation, drag-and-drop text tasks, word highlighting, etc.). The types of content that can be created in the H5P format are listed in the article. The study was conducted on the basis of the third course of the ship – engineering department of Kherson State Maritime Academy. The main goal of the experiment was the formation of communicative competence of future ship – engineers using the digital environment of a maritime educational institution.

It highlights that the objective results of assessment are an important component in the formation of a competence approach to the professional training of modern specialists. Generalized theoretical developments of domestic and foreign scientists on the given problem are considered, the analysis of which proves that pedagogical assessment has always ranked high in providing educational services. It is noted that although placement, diagnostic, progress, achievement, and proficiency tests have been the main forms of assessment in higher education institutions for quite some time, with the beginning of digitalization of educational system, objective conditions have led to implementation of pedagogical assessment using information and communication technologies. A global pandemic as well as the war in Ukraine urge the expansion of possibilities and improvement of the quality of pedagogical assessment of students’ learning outcomes using distance learning technologies. Therefore, the state and potential of educational assessment are analyzed; results of measuring learning outcomes using distance learning technologies in higher education institutions are investigated. It was found that there are adequate conditions for distance learning of students via various Language Management Systems LMS (Moodle, Brightspace, Docebo, Edmondo, Schoology) in Ukrainian institutions of higher education. At the same time, the survey taken by the educational process stakeholders confirmed the hypothesis that faculty and students are not quite ready to accept pedagogical assessment carried out through the medium of distance learning technologies which considerably complicates objective assessment and evaluation of learning outcomes in the absence of face-to-face communication. In order to meet the present day requirements, a set of measures is proposed regarding the preparation and conduct of pedagogical assessment of students’ learning outcomes using digital technologies.</span></p> 2023-07-17T19:07:40+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Information Technologies in Education (ITE) THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL BASICS OF GAMIFICATION IN EDUCATION 2023-08-23T00:11:52+03:00 Kateryna Hnedina admin@admin.admin Pavlo Nahornyi admin@admin.admin <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The article is devoted to the analysis, comprehensive assessment and characteristics of the theoretical and practical principles of gamification in education.

All over the world, educational institutions have been forced to switch to distance learning. Due to the current situation, the demand for online education and information resources to support it has grown all over the world. The issue of not only the organization of online learning, but also the processes of electronic assessment of student progress is relevant. The authors analyzed business processes in assessing students' knowledge and existing software. The main disadvantage of the existing systems of support of the educational process at the university is the limited, and sometimes inability, access to them for certain participants in the educational process, especially in the conditions of distance learning. It is determined that a system with functional capabilities is needed for the following actors: student, teacher, head of department, dean and dean's office. The data in the system must be stored in a database, and the interface for accessing them must be possible from any web browser. The work is devoted to the development of such software. The developed system has the architecture of a distributed three-tier information system with access to the database, and consists of the following main links, such as: a web server with developed software as an application server, a database server running MySQL DBMS, a web browser as a client software. The use of a success assessment system provides many advantages, including: improving the quality of information processing, speeding up work processes and increasing the availability of data for all participants in the educational process.<br>The COVID-19 crisis and unprecedented disruptions in the education system are far from over. Thus, the growing demand for online learning tools and related resources will remain in demand. Therefore, the developed multilevel information system for accounting for student performance is relevant now. This software will also be useful in the traditional form of learning. Because keeping an e-journal will reduce the filling of paper documents, reduce the burden on the teacher and provide easy access to information of other participants in the educational process: students and staff of the dean's office.</p> 2022-10-20T16:09:21+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Technologies in Education (ITE) COMPUTERIZED TEST CONTROL IN THE FINAL EVALUATION OF STUDYING RESULTS 2023-08-15T09:20:59+03:00 Viktor Shakotko <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The aim of the study was to identify the main factors influencing the effectiveness of learning evaluation outcomes during the final control and state certification of pedagogical college graduates to build a model of quality assurance in education. All the students of three fields of study (Preschool Education, Primary Education, Secondary Education (Physical Education)) and 136 lecturers at Anton Makarenko Pedagogical College of Kremenchuk took part in the study during ten years. The total number of students who participated in the experiment exceeded 1.5 thousand people. The final assessment was organized using tests of three levels of difficulty. At various stages of the study the results were processed using correlation, multivariate and other types of analysis, which allowed the correction of the course of the experiment. A conclusion, based on these results, was made about the significant influence of psychological, pedagogical and instrumental factors either on the process or the effectiveness (objectivity) of the computerized evaluation system. The negative impact of these factors can be partially offset by taking into account the recommendations for planning, conducting and analyzing the results of computerized test control, which were developed based on the results of the study. The incompleteness of the research is pointed out, especially in the issues of reducing the influence of subjective factors and the prospects of its continuation in the direction of increasing the validity of the specified evaluation system, development of integration competence and professionally oriented tests are substantiated.</span></p> 2022-06-27T15:19:16+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Technologies in Education (ITE) STUDY OF FUNDAMENTALS OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN THE SCHOOL COURSE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE 2023-08-15T09:17:04+03:00 Nataliia Valko Angelina Tynina <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The article presents the genesis of artificial intelligence as a science aimed at technologies development based on automated highly intelligent systems.

The article presents the experience of implementing ICT in learning sociolinguistic practices in distance learning, which can be useful for science teachers of high school. The expediency and efficiency of the distance learning system "KSU Online" usage, created at Kherson State University on the basis of the information environment "Moodle", is proved. Various activities and resources of the platform allow students to place the necessary materials for practice and set up interaction between the head of the practice and higher education. It is known that Zoom platform is convenient to use for introductory and final conferences, group and individual consultations, online meetings. There is also identified the functional potential of the Viber messenger in distance learning: establishing a rapid and timely exchange of information between participants in the educational process, in particular, prompt counseling of interns on urgent issues. The effectiveness of using YouTube video hosting materials and involving students in creating their own media products (group video practice report of applicants on the Youtube channel of the Department of Ukrainian Philology and Journalism "PhiloVLOGiya") was demonstrated. The expediency of using multimedia posters created on the Thinglink platform as thematic collections of resources on the Internet to activate students' knowledge and direct them to study practice has been determined. Attention is drawn to the fact that there are various online services for the development and conduct the survey, the teacher just needs to advise students to use electronic resources that contain recommendations for the development and usage of online surveys</span></h1> 2022-01-19T12:51:29+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Technologies in Education (ITE) USE OF VIRTUAL LABORATORIES IN STUDY OF BIOCHEMISTRY BY STUDENTS OF NATURAL FACULTIES 2023-08-22T23:51:26+03:00 Natalya Ilkevych <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The biochemistry course is one of the basic scientific disciplines studied by students of the chemical and biological specialties of pedagogical universities. Its importance for the methodological training of teachers is growing due to the increase in the volume of biochemical content in school courses in organic chemistry and general biology. The purpose of the article is to describe and analyze the capabilities of virtual laboratories that can be used in the study of the discipline "Biochemistry" by students of natural faculties. The advantages and disadvantages of using such services, features, prospects and examples of their use are given. Among the large number of virtual labs available to Internet users STAR (Software Tools for Academics and Researchers) – a program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Wolfram Demonstrations Project, The ChemCollective and Virtual Labs are selected. The choice of the most suitable services for use was based on the following requirements: free, no registration, an intuitive interface, the ability to use it on any computer connected to the Internet. The possibilities of computer animation allow the student to form a visual image of the spatial structure of complex natural compounds. Selected virtual laboratories contain material necessary to prepare for laboratory exercises, demonstration videos on YouTube, as well as guidelines for laboratory work and materials that can be used for preparing reports, presentations, in independent and remote work and while mastering complex biochemical processes and phenomena. To check and assess the knowledge of students after mastering the laboratory practice with the involvement of virtual laboratories for testing. According to the results of the assignments, the number of students with a high level of mastering the material increased from 10 to 14%, and the number of students who received marks of more than 74 points for completing the tests – from 54 to 78%. The use of virtual laboratories can significantly improve the quality of education.</span></p> 2022-01-19T12:49:48+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Technologies in Education (ITE) THE USE OF MOODLE BY CADETS OF MILITARY HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS IN THE PROCESS OF SELF-STUDY WHEN LEARNING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE 2023-08-15T11:40:34+03:00 Oksana Sovhar Viktoriia Boichenko <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The article tackles the problem of self-study organization of future officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the context of a foreign language learning. Self-study is considered as an important factor of self-education and educational and cognitive activity of cadets. Forms and means, as well as types of self-study are analyzed and ways to improve the process of a foreign language mastering by optimizing the activities of cadets during self-education using the learning management system Moodle are suggested.<br></span><span style="font-weight: 400;">It has been determined that self-education of future officers of the Armed Forces at a foreign language studying using LMS Moodle contributes to the acquisition of important skills, including analysis of foreign language professionally oriented texts, obtaining the necessary information, evaluation and application of available information for effective combat missions completion and interaction in foreign language. It has been established that the readiness level of cadets to perform self-education increases when it is a holistic course, developed on the basis of methodically organized educational information environment. Among the benefits of the Moodle learning management system, which implements the philosophy of “pedagogy of social constructivism”, is primarily the effective organization of interaction between teacher and cadets.
