Abstract

The relevance of the researched problem is due to the need for monitoring online teaching during the coronavirus pandemic and improving teachers' skills in the process of online teaching and communication with students. The purpose of the research was to find whether there were statistically significant differences in students' positive attitudes towards online teaching conducted in three different study programmes and the communication between students and professors during the coronavirus pandemic. The following methods were used in the research: theoretical (analysis, synthesis, generalisation), diagnostic (Likert scale), statistics and graphical presentation of the results. Our research also shows that students have positive attitudes towards online teaching and communication with teachers. A contribution to such students' attitudes was probably given by the university teachers' existing online teaching skills as well as students' digital skills and competencies owed to the use of social networks. The research aimed to draw attention to the factors that are important for the implementation of quality online teaching in faculties at the time of the pandemic. It emphasised the importance of researching students' perception of the quality of online teaching and various aspects of communication with teachers at a time when they were unable to communicate live. Therefore, the research results can stimulate similar research in higher education to identify those factors that could contribute to the satisfaction of students and teachers with this type of teaching.
