Abstract

The paper deals with the main problems and prospects of using e-learning technologies in the Russian education in the training of engineers of the XXI century. The factors hindering the development of a clear and consistent conceptual framework for the research are revealed as well as contradictions in the results of studies on the use of e-learning, the lack of justification for the effectiveness of the new e-learning technologies. The revealed contradictions allowed to formulate the purpose of the study, associated with the need to create a technology in order to overcome the observed problems for students of technical specialties. A technology to overcome motivational, didactic and activity barriers in the blended training of engineers is offered. The research methodology is based on the competence approach to the implementation of the educational process. Scientific methods include the analysis and content generalization of pedagogical and methodical literature. The results of the experiment proved the fact that e-learning is an effective instrument to level motivational, didactic and activity barriers. The results of the study and materials can be used in the preparation of educational programs aimed at the development of e-learning technologies, as well as for the adjustment of their content.
