CLOUD TECHNOLOGIES IN INFORMATIONAL AND METHODOLOGICAL SUPPORT OF UNIVERSITY STUDENTS’ INDEPENDENT STUDY
Based on the analysis of scientific and methodological sources, the article looks at the state of informational and methodological support of students’ independent study. The authors conclude that insufficient attention is being currently paid in Ukraine to the implementation of informational and methodological support of students’ independent study using cloud technologies. It has been determined that independent work as the dominant component of the students’ educational activity in the framework of joining the European educational space requires a new approach to its construction, covering the whole set of innovative aspects. The general problem of education is the reduction of the number of classroom hours and transfer of a significant amount of study material to independent study. Such a situation requires further scientific analysis and the development of specific recommendations in order to improve the independent learning activities. On the basis of the content analysis of scientific articles on the professional training of university students, the directions of improving informational and methodological support of students’ independent study were singled out on the example of the discipline “Modern Information Technologies”. Studies have been conducted among the students regarding their readiness to use the informational and methodological support of independent study and it is determined that it is advisable to use Google cloud services and an educational site with educational materials for independent work. In the article the approaches to introduction of informational and methodological support of students’ independent study are theoretically grounded and a model of informational and methodological support of independent study of university students is developed. Informational and methodological support of students’ independent study is based on the integration of two classifications of independent work (in terms of the type of learning tasks and of educational and cognitive activity) that will be performed in the complex way and will facilitate the formation of university students’ ability to organize and plan and the ability to work independently. For the discipline “Modern Information Technologies” an Internet resource is developed in the form of a site that contains the necessary information for performing independent work. Separately, an electronic calendar for the organization of independent student learning was developed. The integration of calendar elements into the educational site has been carried out in order to ensure the functioning of the informational and methodological support of students’ independent study. The methodological principles of informational and methodological support of students’ independent study were developed, namely the use of cloud service Google Calendar in the course “Modern Information Technologies”.
