Note: Since no optimal technological solutions have been proposed so far, most distance programs still require a full-time exam session. It is impossible to say who is on the other end of the wire. In a number of cases, this is a problem and requires special measures, techniques and skills of teachers – tutors. Partly this problem is solved with the installation of video cameras on the side of the instructor and the corresponding software training. The need for a number of individual psychological conditions. As a rule, students feel a lack of practical training. There is no constant control over the trainees, which for the Russian people is a powerful incentive. The high cost of building a system of DO at the initial stage of creating a system, the costs of creating a distance learning system, the distance learning courses themselves and the purchase of technical equipment are great. High complexity of the development of courses DO. Creating 1 hour of truly interactive multimedia interaction takes more than 1000 hours of professionals.
