Keywords:blended learning, ICT in language teaching, multimedia presentations, intensification of teaching
AbstractAn increasing number of lecturers are experimenting with innovative computer-mediated approaches to foreign languages teaching (FLT), dramatically altering the ways students interact with learning content. This comparatively common acceptance of digital learning technologies has enlarged the integration of multimedia teaching and learning tools into the traditional, face-to-face classroom setting, thus blended approach to content supply in FLT has experienced extensive progress in higher education. The article deals with the practice of usage of the most popular multimedia technological tools, such as Prezi, Google Slides, PowerPoint, in foreign languages teaching at higher educational institutions. In the course of research surveys were made to determine the types of collaboration and evaluation preferred by the students, their expectations from foreign language learning process, which, in their turn, gave grounds to point out the factors promoting intensification of the teaching process in the context of blended learning.
