Abstract

Due to the internetization and globalization of society, modern education has to adjust and follow the latest trends in the development of modern technologies. As a result, traditional methods of education began to be supplemented with new teaching methods, which are based on the use of Internet and telecommunication technologies. Thus, distance education or education in a virtual environment came to the fore and began to occupy a leading position among other educational facilities. One of the most popular virtual educational tools is a webinar. Webinar - eng. “webinar” – is a lecture or a seminar organized with the help of web-technologies both in live and off-line mode. Webinars are very similar to the usual lectures or lessons held in educational institutions, since they have a clear structure, retain the status of the student-teacher relationship, use the same language facilities that representatives of the institute of education use. Among the distinctive features of English-language webinars for journalists in the educational environment, it is possible to single out: 1) the way of implementing communicative interaction (any texts are generated using Internet technologies or other means that provide for interactivity); 2) communicative orientation (the text used in the online seminar may involve feedback, or it may be a one-way process); 3) specific chronotop (communication of participants in the webinar can take place both online and offline).
