Abstract


The article is devoted to the discussion of the questions connected with the construction and the organization of interaction of information educational environments of various levels: learning management system of educational institution (LMS), personal teacher environment (PTE) and personal learner environment (PLE). It is shown that LMS cannot provide support of the solution of a number of didactic tasks (joint educational activity, access to tools, cross-platform software, creation of the personal educational space available after completion of study, etc.). As a solution of the present situation the creation of virtual personal environments for the teacher and student is offered, within which, on the one hand, long storage of educational information (i.e. technological support of the thesis “Long life education”), and, on the other hand, realization of various forms of joint educational activities are possible. The article analyzes the basic terminology and concepts, offers their clarification in the context of developing the idea. The question of the organization of optimum interaction between educational environments of various levels (LMS, PTE and PLE) has to be solved by the teacher depending on features of the course of study and the training methods used. In particular, the selection of two basic schemes of such an organization is considered and justified. The approbation of the stated approach was made when teaching the disciplines “Computer mathematics” and “Computer graphics” to students—future IT specialists. The expediency and the ability to create virtual personal training by teachers and students are shown, and also the examples of their interaction with each other and the university LMS are given.
