Features of adaptation of scientific and pedagogical employees of higher education institutions that teach foreign languages, as well as representatives of the administrative level and employees of distance education departments, etc . (these feachers are: forsed introduction of the wide range of distant learning tools and platforms into the educational process, high-school teachers' speed mastery of different meeans of distant learning tools and resources, accomodation to provide classes on different distant learning video-tools ect.);
