IT types in education
The list of IT varieties is constantly being updated; however, the main types have long and firmly entered the educational system:
- Computer testing. Such control is the basis for obtaining the most objective and rapid assessment of the level of knowledge and skills acquired by students.

- Distance learning — with the help of the Internet network, independent study of the material takes place at a distance, while communication with the teacher and other students is maintained. Everyone knows that such distance learning is widely used along with the traditional form, but its use often casts doubt on the effectiveness of the entire educational process.
