Abstract

The authors have analyzed the problem of students’ self-study organization at higher school on the basis of studying pedagogical, psychological and methodical literature, program-methodical documentation of higher educational institutions, experience of practical work. In accordance with the normative increase on students’ self-study load, there was a need to use Moodle system. It has been found out that the organization of students’ self-study by means of Moodle system in the process of foreign language learning has not been properly researched. To solve this problem, a new curriculum and the author’s special course «Professional language of an economist» for foreign language learning have been developed and implemented for the first-year students of economic specialties. The main advantages of the special course for organization of students’ self-study, monitoring and analysis of students’ activity in the process of foreign language learning have been determined. The effectiveness of organization of students’ self-study by means of Moodle system in the process of foreign language learning has been experimentally tested and proved.
