COVID -19 pandemic hit all the countries all around the world and one can hardly find a person who was not affected by its consequences. While the pandemic is in its peak, many spheres of our life was changed drammatically, and teaching was no exception. Regardless of hard times, teachers have to provide the best possible standard of education, so remote classes have become the last resort of teaching staff in their work. Happily, no specialty on Earth is better suited for remote classes than IT, so many innovative approaches appeared as the responses to the challenges of the pandemic. The authors present the approach allowing to maintain high quality of teaching practical skills in the field of databases. The article presents the approaches that might come in handy to many educators in today’s situation. The article shows the practices of preparing video materials and examples of their application in conducting classes. Several cases have been reviewed: standalone student work after familiarizing with the material from the video as well as cooperation with the teacher and using video throughout the complete classes. The paper also presents the comparison of the results achieved by the students from previous years, when the teaching was normal, and the scores obtained by the students in the present year. The paper also compares the degree of engagement of students with and without video -streaming-assisted approach. As the example of video-streaming-non-assisted approach the grades of the students from the previous semester, when the remote classes were started but no video materials used, is applied.
