Abstract

Distance learning has become a salvation for the educational sphere during a pandemic. One of the methods of this training is online courses. Although online courses were popular before the epidemic, they were mainly aimed at university students. In this article, we define the types of content and features for creating online courses for secondary school students. In addition, the relationship between the materials used by teachers and those preferred by students was determined. The data was obtained by observing lessons and interviewing students aged 14-17 at a school in the UK. As a result of the analysis, it was revealed that students prefer to receive information in the form of videos, images and presentations. Possibilities for progress data, feedback and commenting on lessons were identified as functions. The findings of the study can be used by secondary school teachers to create online courses in school subjects or to create content in preparation for exams.

Keywords: distance learning, online learning, web-lessons, teaching services, online courses.
