APPLICATION OF THE CONCEPT OF DISTANCE LEARNING OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING SUBJECT DURING PANDEMIC PERIOD – A CASE STUDY
The COVID-19 pandemic period has changed the personal as well as professional lives of people around the world in every area, without exception of education. Students and teachers have been adapting to new learning conditions and methods in our region for more than a year. For the topicality of the theme, the authors decided to follow up on the paper entitled Design of the concept of distance learning of electrical engineering subjects using Matlab and Simulink simulation tools, which was presented at the INTED 2021 conference. The authors present the results obtained from a case study. They analyzed students' opinions on the application´s concept of distance learning of electrical engineering by selected methods in a large group of second-year university students studying at the Faculty of Manufacturing Technologies with a Seat in Prešov of Technical University of Košice (Slovak Republic). The study aimed to find out students' opinions on the applied concept. As a tool, was used an online questionnaire created in Google Forms. The platform provides the possibility of anonymity and an overview of answers that can be exported to multiple formats. The study should provide teachers with feedback on the applied concept of learning. Based on the results of the case study, it is possible to evaluate the current student-teacher interaction during distance learning, get to know the motivation of students, and reveal shortcomings in this form of learning.
