The coronavirus pandemic brought major changes to virtually all spheres of human life. Despite seeming a fantastic reality at first glance, fulfilling professional duties using electronic resources has gradually become an integral part of our lives. All spheres of society had to adapt to the changed reality in a short amount of time including in the sphere of education. However, despite all the difficulties associated with the problems of getting access to high-speed Internet, traffic speed, the lack of modern electronic devices, etc, the sphere of education has handled them quite shortly. The goal of the study is to disclose the specific features of the organization of the educational process with the use of electronic educational resources in an agrarian university during the pandemic. The article indicates the distinguishing characteristics of distance learning, identifies and characterizes the main instruments of distance learning in the force majeure circumstances of self-isolation in a specific university, as well as provides an example of the minimum requirements for filling up the Moodle e-learning environment. The attitudes of teachers and students to distance education in the new conditions are studied through a survey. The scientific novelty of the study lies in the interdisciplinarity of the consideration of the topic of interest. As a result, the study reveals a common trend characteristic of both students and teachers, consisting in the division into those who feel good about the electronic educational environment and those who have difficulty using it in the learning process.

Origami is a means of geometric modeling and self-organization formation in young children. As a part of preschool education, it serves as propaedeutics of basic geometry. One of the tasks of modern education is to improve the social status of mathematics because of its ability to encourage self-development in children. The research was based on the synergetic paradigm which defines a young child as an open nonlinear system capable of self-development. The article gives a theoretical and conceptual justification of origami as a means of self-organization development through the nonlinear educational environment that introduces preschoolers to mathematical culture. Origami proved to be able to enrich preschool education as this activity concentrates the educational resources of the structure-forming environment.

The article presents the results of experimental testing of pedagogical conditions for forming information competence of future specialists in navigation and ship handling. While teaching the disciplines «Ocean Routes of the World», «Navigation Bridge Resource Management», «Actions in Accidents, Search and Rescue at Sea», «Navigation Information Systems» it is suggested to use interactive methods to form the cadets’ ability to generalize, analyze and use information during professional interaction, develop the ability to spread information about vessel handling, workload management, to share their experience in navigation with other people, make requests, give suggestions on solving pressing problems. To develop cadets' skills in information support of navigation information systems, it is proposed to use electronic educational resources, including educational, information, scientific, reference materials presented in electronic form or stored in computer networks. The importance of modern technologies, including information resources of the Internet, such as blogs, web quests, blog quests, as well as simulation technologies with augmented and virtual reality has been highlighted.

LAY SUMMARY The media can shape the opinions, beliefs, and attitudes of the public towards Veterans, Veterans’ issues, and Veteran suicide. Given the Lionel Desmond murder-suicide was covered extensively in Canadian media, the authors read and analyzed the tone and content of Canadian newspaper coverage of this incident, using social science methods. On the one hand, the authors found the media sometimes violated some of the best practice guidelines about how to responsibly report suicide and mental health when writing about the Lionel Desmond incident, for example, rarely including help-seeking information. On the other hand, journalists typically wrote about this incident in compassionate terms, calling for more action to help Veterans’ mental health, as well as more support for Veterans who are in transition to civilian life. In sum, the study reveals that much media coverage of the Lionel Desmond incident adhered to reporting guidelines, but there also remains room for improvement. The results indicate a need for more educational resources and better outreach to help Canadian journalists responsibly report issues around Veterans’ mental health and Veteran suicide.

The traditional online education resource integration technology ignores the calculation of the characteristic variance contribution rate of online educational resources, and the evaluation of educational resources is biased, which leads to the low ability of resource integration. Therefore, the online education resource integration technology based on remote scheduling of teaching information is proposed. Based on the theory of remote scheduling of teaching information, the quantitative value of online educational resources integration is obtained. By calculating the integration probability of online educational resources, the influencing factors of online educational resources in the process of integration are determined. The principle of teaching information remote scheduling is integrated into the feature vector extraction of online educational resources, and the contribution rate of feature variance of online educational resources is calculated. By extracting the number of main factors of the online educational resources feature vector, the feature vector of online educational resources is decomposed. Taking the wavelet entropy of online educational resources as the fusion weight of online educational resources, the integration result of online educational resources is obtained through wavelet transform. The experimental results show that the online education resource integration technology based on remote scheduling of teaching information has ideal application performance in integration probability, the goodness of fit, and robustness.

The Black Stool has been considered by Western missionaries and missionary established churches mainly as a sacred object and religious material for rituals without much attention to its educational significance. The Western missionaries introduced Christian education and schooling pattern of learning to the Akan societies. The introduction of Western and Christian education came with Bibles, Hymn Books, Liturgy books and other educational materials. Even though the Akan had their own forms of learning, the indigenous educational resources did not attract the consideration of the missionaries. The missionary legacy of not recognizing the indigenous educational materials such as the Black Stool has remained with Christian education in Akan churches and other educational patterns. The study is an examination of the educational dimensions of the Black Stool and its significance for moral and leadership formation. Using both primary and secondary sources to examine the role of the Black Stool in moral education and leadership formation, the study points out the fact that the Black Stool is capable of providing even education in Christian history and calls for the need for re-thinking Akan Christian history to reflect significant intellectual weight embedded in the Black Stool. The study has established that the Akan Black Stool that over the years has been considered mainly from its sacred and religious dimensions has educational dimensions that equally must attract intellectual attention. The study identifies the traditional pattern of learning as a discipline that must attract intellectual attention. Moreover, there is a need for a paradigm shift on the perception of the Black Stool. A paradigm shift on the perception of indigenous educational resources will position the Black Stool as a relevant educational resource for a traditional pattern of learning. The study calls for a need for re-thinking of Akan Christian history to retrieve Christian information and history that have been embedded in indigenous resources like the Black Stool. Keywords: Akan, Black Stool, Traditional Patterns of Learning, Christianity, Educational Resources.

Because of the different reasons between regions, the distribution of educational resources is also different, the development of each school is unbalanced, and the degree of campus education informationization is different. The complex functional structure not only does not facilitate teachers and students but also leads to many problems: the prevention and prevention of campus life safety. It is difficult to keep and use multiple cards owned by one person. Software and education platform cannot be seamlessly connected, and there are various barriers between data and data and people and data. The lack of learning materials leads to the inequality of information. There are no good feedback and solution between teachers and students. It is difficult to manage accurately with a large number of people. This study will be based on the Internet and artificial intelligence technology, to explore how to study a large (or super large), concise and efficient, and excellent performance of campus education information system; this system can meet the teachers and students no matter what year, month, and day of a large number of visits. For some problems in the process of building the system, actively optimize and refine them. After functional testing and analysis of the system, the experimental results show that the interface function of the new system is stable, the usability test is better than the feedback experience of the original system, the response time is reduced by 21.6% on average, and the overall power consumption of the system is reduced by about 1.43% on average.

Background: Medical and pharmacy students are future healthcare professionals who will be on the forefront in dealing with antibiotics in hospitals or community settings. Whether the current medical and pharmacy education in Pakistan prepares students to take future roles in antibiotic use remains an under-researched area. Aim: This study aims to compare medical and pharmacy students’ perceived preparedness, learning practices and usefulness of the education and training on antibiotic use and resistance imparted during undergraduate studies in Pakistan. Design and Setting: It was amulti-centre cross-sectional survey of medical and pharmacy colleges in Punjab, Pakistan. Method: A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect data from final year medical and pharmacy students. Descriptive statistics were used for categorical variables while independent t-test and One-way ANOVA computed group differences. Result: Nine hundred forty-eight respondents (526 medical and 422 pharmacy students) completed the survey from 26 medical and 19 pharmacy colleges. Majority (76.1%) of the pharmacy students had not completed a clinical rotation in infectious diseases. The top three most often used sources of learning antibiotic use and resistance were the same among the medical and the pharmacy students; included textbooks, Wikipedia, and smart phone apps. Overall self-perceived preparedness scores showed no significant difference between pharmacy and medical students.. The least prepared areas by medical and pharmacy students included transition from intravenous to oral antibiotics and interpretation of antibiograms. Both medical and pharmacy students found problem solving sessions attended by a small group of students to be the most useful (very useful) teaching methodology to learn antibiotic use and resistance. Conclusions: Differences exist between medical and pharmacy students in educational resources used, topics covered during undergraduate degree. To curb the growing antibiotic misuse and resistance, the concerned authorities should undertake targeted educational reforms to ensure that future physicians and pharmacists can play a pivotal role in rationalizing the use of antibiotics.
