The research studies and analyzes inquiries of educational process participants in Institute of Journalism of Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University due to the change of an activity format during restrictive quarantine measures initiated under COVID-19 pandemic. In order to receive the data, 62 professors and 302 students of bachelor and master academic levels have been inquired; the activity of internal distance learning system participants and the level of technical possibilities of access to it, the level of using online-platforms and services to implement distance learning (hereinafter referred to as the DL) have been under analysis. The research results prove that all educational process participants are aware of distance learning: 1/3 of the respondents consider distance learning to be a critical need of that period, and more than two thirds admit that it is a perspective learning form. 40% of educators use distant technologies in their work on a regular basis and believe that the main problem is absence of face-to-face communication with students. According to the monitoring data, more than 90% of students in the institute have a free access to DL; moreover, poor Internet connection was specified as a problem for DL implementation. The research has also provided an opportunity to assess the change in educational and working load for the educational process participants, as well as this learning form by the latter. This analysis provides a possibility to demonstrate the importance of the preliminary work done by the Institute to implement DL, a necessity for learning process participants to receive previous experience in different forms of learning: up to 70% of respondents consider the use of different learning platforms to be productive, a significant amount of which are video conference services (18.5% - Hangouts Meet, 14.9% - Zoom). The monitoring also demonstrates the efficiency of different platforms for an educational process, moreover, it provides grounds for further study of psychological needs for face-to-face communication, since the data received from the respondents demonstrate different approaches to this issue.
