Virtual Meeting Platforms
Abstract: In the 21st century almost every higher education course includes some type of digital learning. Many universities provide blended, online or e-learning courses. Many LMS platforms are used for online learning and testing students in various fields. Several virtual meeting platforms are used for online learning and communication. The use of these platforms at universities skyrocketed during the Covid-19 pandemic. This paper focuses on teachers’ experience and satisfaction with different tools for online learning in comparison with traditional, face-to-face teaching methods. The authors surveyed three academies of applied studies in Serbia. According to the survey, most teachers used online learning platforms as well as virtual meetings during the Covid-19 pandemic and they were satisfied. The results of the survey imply that the majority of teachers find blended learning to be the optimal method of teaching in the future.
