Abstract (English):
The article deals with various organizational issues of distance learning in vocational education. The authors applied the theory of distance learning to vocational education in Russia. The research featured teachers of more than 40 educational institutions, who mentioned such problems as the lack of equipment, personal computers, software, and Internet access. Most respondents believed that the quality of vocational education deteriorated during distance learning mostly as a result of poor technical support. Another problem is the absence of personal contact between teaching staff and students. The authors analyzed the current situation and propose various means of improvement, e.g. asynchronous teaching methods.
