The Lessons of Forced Distance Learning: Software Engineering Approach in the Gap of Generations of Educational Software

P. 54-65.

Quite recently, considerable attention has been paid to distance learn- ing due to mass schools and universities closing because of coronavirus disease. This fact brought to light not only strengths but also weaknesses of existing edu- cational software and use cases. This paper is motivated by the questions which are rinsed by thoroughly adopted educational software and the deep gap between educational methodologies and up-to-date distributed information infrastructure capabilities. The lack of an engineering approach in the deployment of distance learning tools leads to both technological and methodological problems. We pre- sent exploratory analysis of data gathered from authority web sources. The sig- nificant ideological differences between educational software generations are discussed with special attention to non-cloud-based and cloud-based collabora- tive technologies and corresponding platforms. The authors conclude that the power of integration based on industry-wide interoperability standards is useful to solve current problems in distance education related to software.
