Many adults do not always have the opportunity and desire to attend classes at universities. The main reasons for this circumstance include, for example, having a family, family responsibilities and a permanent job. Taking into account these realities, another alternative appears - the possibility of interactive learning using the global Internet.

Traditional teaching methods have now lost their effectiveness. The search for new ways and methods of transferring knowledge and skills will allow us to keep pace with the constantly changing environment around us. New educational technologies will help not only overcome the limitations of time and space, but also qualitatively assimilate large amounts of information and knowledge. At the same time, those educational technologies that are based on modern information technologies play an important role in promoting the modernization of education.
