Communication Challenges of Digital Transformation In Higher Education: Research of Students’ Experience With Distance Learning
Nowdays we are witnwssing accelerated technological progress applied in almost all areas of human activity.The global pandemic, has led to the need of moving from traditional, face-to-face classroom teaching to hybrid learning model and online tutoring. The aim of this research is to examine students' satisfaction and attitudes about the quality of distance learning, hybrid teaching and learning through various online teaching platforms, by conducting an online anonymous survey among students. The set hypotheses are: students prefer traditional "face to face" teaching in relation to the hybrid model and students prefer traditional "face to face" teaching in relation to the online model. The results of this research showed that the surveyed students believe that the platforms for conducting distance learning are easy to use, for the most part they believe that teaching in the future could be conducted partly live and partly online. A large percentage of surveyed students believe that teaching during the pandemic was well designed, but poorly conducted. It is concluded that distance learning corresponded to the necessity of a situation caused by a pandemic, but that in the future live classroom teaching will always have priority, so that the overall study experience is complete.
