Abstract

This chapter identified the pedagogical and engineering features of Online & Blended Learning of Adults using Triple H - Avatar created by Prof. Vardan Mkrttchian (HHH University) in Russian Federation. As parts of research are conducted by us in the period from 2010 to 2015, we found that one of the main features of adult education is given the life and educational experience of the student. The resulting operations for adjustments to the organization of the learning process are a refinement of the program of study (or the curriculum or training contract). Using the training system Triple H-Avatar in accordance with these features of the organization of training is possible and is effective to the extent that the student, regardless of age, in a state in terms of motivation, responsibility, preliminary training, the overall development, the presence of life experience to actively participate in implementation of all the above actions, together with the teacher.

Background

In the modern system of higher education, university education has formed a new organizational structure: divisions in traditional distance education and open universities; universities distance education; consortia of universities; TV university; virtual classrooms and virtual universities, which should be a global system, flexible, individualized, which is building the knowledge, continuing education throughout a person's life. The old paradigm of the labor theory of value is replaced by a new one, developed on the basis of information theory of value.

The Bell (1981) discusses about the information and theoretical knowledge of the essence of the strategic resources of post-industrial society. In addition, in his new role they represent turning points in modern history. The first turning point is to change the very nature of science. Science as a “general knowledge” has become the main productive force of modern society. The second turning point is the liberation of technology from its “imperative” character, an almost complete its transformation into an obedient tool .

The acquisition of new knowledge, information, skills, makes a statement that their renewal and development are fundamental characteristics of workers in the post-industrial economy. Personality in the information society receives new opportunities for self-fulfillment and development, but also to use these opportunities requires active work of the education of students themselves.

In connection with the development of free training to modify the relationship between students, there is teaching and learning. Learners are adults, and training is carried out continuously throughout life. The purpose of adult education is closely associated with certain socio-psychological, occupational, household, personal problems, or factors or conditions with sufficiently clear ideas about further application of acquired knowledge, skills and qualities.

Terms of adult learning are often determined temporal, spatial, household, professional (for working people), and social factors that can contribute to learning, but in most cases, significantly complicate or even impede the learning activities of students. Typically, adult education takes place in short periods of intense training.

Analysis of the literature and other scientific sources allowed us to formulate the principles of learning, defining the activities of students on how to organize their own learning.
