An indispensable condition for ensuring a modern high-quality educational process in higher education is the use of innovative technologies. The application of electronic textbooks in foreign languages teaching is of particular importance, since traditional methods of education give way to more advanced methods that can facilitate the perception and consolidation of educational material by students.

In the article on the example of the author's developments of electronic textbooks on English and German languages, the main advantages and disadvantages of these educational resources are compared with print publications. Among the advantages of electronic textbooks are the following: interactivity, visibility, high quality of methodological tools, consistency of presentation, hierarchical structure, individualization of the educational process.

The individual training program provided by the structure of the electronic textbook guarantees a deeper understanding and consolidation of the studied material. The possibility of self-selection of the sequence of studying the material and the pace of work, self-monitoring, evaluation of the effectiveness of training increases the effectiveness of training sessions, enhances the motivation of students to learn foreign languages.

When describing the shortcomings of electronic textbooks, such factors are indicated: the need for special equipment for working with an electronic textbook – a computer with software and a quality monitor; non-traditional nature of information presentation (electronic form); increased fatigue when working with the monitor. Nevertheless, the above disadvantages do not reduce the merits of electronic textbooks.
