Abstract
Forced to go into self-isolation due to the coronavirus outbreak, all students had to be moved to distance learning. Imposed by the Government in a short time, distance learning has hit both the learning process and the teachers hard. This paper provides a follow up on the emergency transition to distance learning and a review of the distance learning toolkit used during self-isolation, including e-learning means and solutions: e-mail, student portals, distance learning software, conference platforms, and virtual classrooms. It examines the benefits and shortcomings of distance education, assesses the overall efficiency of remote learning, analyzes the learning content delivered on the e-learning platforms. The conclusion has been made that distance learning, if used reasonably, can be more efficient and beneficial in certain learning areas.
