  • The current level of competence of schoolteachers on how to use cloud
           technologies in the educational process during COVID-19

    • Authors: Tetiana Vakaliuk, Oleg Spirin, Olha Korotun, Dmytro Antoniuk, Mariia Medvedieva, Inesa Novitska
      Abstract: During the period of total lockdown caused by COVID-19 pandemic, teachers had to move to distance learning to organize a continuous educational process, which is not possible without the active use of modern information and communication technologies, including cloud services. Because of this, at the beginning of the pandemic, Zhytomyr Polytechnic State University conducted several free distance online courses for teachers, which included studying the possibilities of using cloud technologies in teaching in a pandemic. Somewhat later, some secondary schools in Zhytomyr expressed a desire to take the same courses, but in person. 98 teachers of schools of the city of Zhytomyr were covered by training on courses ``Cloud technologies in the educational process in the conditions of quarantine''. After face-to-face courses, teachers in Zhytomyr schools have significantly increased their competence in the use of cloud technologies in the educational process in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only has their level increased in general, but the horizons regarding the variety of cloud services that should be used in distance learning have expanded. Course training, organized according to scientifically sound methods, helps to increase the motivation of students (teachers) to self-study, as well as to the future use of cloud technologies in the educational process.

  • Using mobile applications with augmented reality elements in the
           self-study process of prospective translators

    • Authors: Svitlana M. Amelina, Rostyslav O. Tarasenko, Serhiy O. Semerikov, Liying Shen
      Abstract: The paper deals with the use of mobile applications for language learning in the self-study process of prospective translators. A comparative analysis was made of some mobile language learning applications. The capabilities of mobile language learning applications are summarised, which include learning vocabulary grammar, pronunciation training, and practice listening and speaking. Particular attention is paid to interactive tasks and gamification of learning. An experiment was conducted with students using the Duolingo mobile app. The advantages of using mobile applications with augmented reality elements in the self-study process of future translators are identified. The main ones are interactivity, accessibility, individual schedules, and the ability to learn anytime, anywhere. There has been a significant increase in motivation to learn a foreign language independently thanks to mobile apps. It is proposed that mobile applications should only be seen as additional opportunities for independent and autonomous learning.

  • Practical application of systemizing expedition research results in the
           form of taxonomy

    • Authors: Yevhenii Shapovalov, Viktor Shapovalov, Roman Tarasenko, Zhanna Bilyk, Irina Shapovalova, Adrian Paschke, Fabian Andruszkiewicz
      Abstract: Data processing is complicated nowadays due to its vast amount and low structuration level. Perspective field to provide such structuration is exceptional studies because, in most cases, they foresee measuring parameters planned before such expeditions. Therefore, it is possible to define the parameters that will be measured and prepare forms to fill them during the expedition. This study substantiates the way of processing such data in the form of ontologies, providing structuring and interoperability of expedition data by providing a similar structuring approach. The case of using such an approach based on real-life expedition study in the field of the environment of the National Center "Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine" is described. The approach foresees using Excel to define the parameters that will be measured during an expedition in the form of table’s columns. Each row in such a table will represent the place or name of the research object. An additional column is devoted to inserting geolocation. After providing the research, such files are uploaded into Polyhedron system and ontology is generated. Such ontologies are stored and integrated into ArcGis and can be used to present their own results and provide background research by other researchers.

  • Virtual learning environments: major trends in the use of modern digital
           technologies in higher education institutions

    • Authors: Mariana Kovtoniuk, Olena Kosovets, Olena Soia, Lyubov Tyutyun
      Abstract: The article reveals the features of development and integrated implementation of virtual learning environment with the use of modern digital technologies in the learning process of higher education. The article summarizes the interpretation of the concept of "virtual learning environment". Virtual learning environment can be interpreted as an immersive online learning environment that has a methodologically integrated learning system, provides an open interactive dynamic learning process in cyberspace using modern digital technologies that take into account the individual educational characteristics of students. The main subjects and functions of the virtual learning environment are identified. One of the links in creating a virtual learning environment is the development of free learning space through websites. It is stated that the teacher's site should be integrated into the learning technology designed and implemented by the teacher. Then the logic and structure of the lesson will be an element of the teacher's creativity, and he is able to choose his own strategy and teaching methods, and not just follow the presentation of the material proposed by other authors. In conditions when the idea of personality-oriented learning, built on the innovative activities of the teacher, is fundamental in education, this approach, according to our research, is crucial. The possibilities of modern network technologies involved in the content management system are described, the roles of participants in the educational process are determined, the tasks solved by educational platforms are indicated, their main functions in the learning environment of higher education institutions are described.

  • Creating a cloud-based translator training environment using Memsource

    • Authors: Rostyslav Tarasenko, Svitlana Amelina, Serhiy Semerikov, Liying Shen
      Abstract: The paper deals with the possibilities of using the Memsource system as the main component of a cloud-based learning environment for training translators. The main advantages of Memsource in the educational process are identified: accessibility through the offer of a demo and an academic programme, easy for mastering, the user-friendly interface, a wide functional range. Experimental training of students in groups for translation projects with mastery of the tasks of team members of different statuses was carried out. Students' evaluation of the functionality of the Memsource system was analysed in terms of learning effectiveness and application in their future professional life. It is proved that the cloud environment formed through the Memsource platform helps future translators to master the tools and resources needed to systematically carry out the full range of translation project operations. The feasibility of basing a cloud-based learning environment for translators on the Memsource system has been established. It has been experimentally proven that the creation of a cloud environment will optimise the structure and components of translation projects in the training process of higher education institutions that train translators.
