Abstract

Distance education is the perfect solution for professionals who want to pursue their careers. This allows to receive additional qualifications, keeping current work. With flexible schedules and resources available on the Internet, distance learning programs can be a key to career advancement. At the time of globalization and the rapid development of technologies, functioning of the university – a full-fledged player in the international market – can not be imagined without the use of distance learning methods. The modern online platform «WeStudy» for the Ukrainian market of educational services was developed. This was done to solve the issue of using modern information and communication technologies to improve the quality of educational services in the implementation of joint Ukrainian-Chinese projects. Programs between the National University of Shipbuilding and its two partners – Zhejiang International Maritime College and Jiangsu University of Science and Technology were taken as a pilot.
