Distance learning has become a staple in education during the past few years. In Ukraine, distance learning is regulated by the "Regulations on distance learning", approved in April, 2013. According to it, distance learning can be understood as "a set of educational services provided to the public at large with using specialized educational environment based on the means of data transmission at a distance". Some aspects of applying of distance technologies in higher educational institutions in Ukraine are shown in the paper.

The main goal of the paper is to describe own experience of the distance learning in Donetsk National University. Exactly because of independence of e-leaning on the distance between the teacher and students training in the University is going on without trouble.

So, from October 2014 university teachers have restored, designed and implemented many distance learning courses on the platform Moodle (https://moodle.donnu.edu.ua/) for the organization of teaching in all 10 Departments of the university. Training of teachers was assigned to The Center for Continuing Education. Distance learning courses are developed based on the experience of world leading universities and can be used for teaching persons with physical disabilities.
