Impact of digital services of hybrid cloud-based learning environment on efficiency of education
This paper aims to analyse the impact of the hybrid cloud-based learning environment providing resources and services to implement interdisciplinary projects in the course of studies on the efficiency of education. A combination of modern methods of pedagogical studies was applied to address the set problems. The authors used theoretical methods, such as analysis, generalisation, comparison, synthesis, and systematisation of research literature and teaching aids providing visibility in terms of the current outlook of the analysed problem and developing and introducing a hybrid cloud-based learning environment to support interdisciplinary projects. The authors also used empirical methods, such as pedagogical experiments, to determine the impact of digital services in the hybrid cloud-based learning environment on students' performance in each discipline of interdisciplinary projects and their profiles in the course of the project. For numeric processing of research findings and statistical tests for objectivity, the authors used methods of mathematical statistics. The case is made for using cloud computing in the education of future professionals. Experimental analysis is conducted to determine the impact of the hybrid cloud-based learning environment providing resources and services to implement interdisciplinary projects in the course of studies on the efficiency of education. The positive impact is shown for the hybrid cloud-based learning in terms of students' progress. The results can make the basis for developing and introducing a hybrid cloud-based learning environment to support interdisciplinary projects. The scientific novelty of this study is underscored by the analysis of the impact of digital services of the hybrid cloud-based learning environment on the efficiency of educating future professionals in the course of an interdisciplinary project.
