USING E-LEARNING IN IMPROVING THE LEVEL OF STUDENTS’ PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCES

 

Maryna Rafalska



Abstract: The article is devoted to the current problem of improving the level of students’ professional competences. The main attention is paid to the preparation of teachers of Informatics and Mathematics.

The article presents the list of students’ competences that could be improved at the studying process of Numerical Analysis and ways of implementation e-learning for obtaining this educational goal.

The paper describes the main components of e-learning course elaborated on the base of CLMS Moodle and corresponding learning activity of students: using learning materials elaborated on the base of Computer Algebra System Maple; filling glossaries of the course; problem solving; assessment of the level of competences, using tests.

Keywords: e-learning, professional competences, Numerical Analysis, teachers of Informatics and Mathematics.
