Abstract: Remote learning, also known as distance education, can be defined as teaching the students with no face-to-face contact with the teacher in class. Once the Coronavirus spread, globally imposed measures became more and more restrictive leading to a major difficulty for the educational systems: identifying fast solutions to the issue of suspending the classes and lectures in-person. The techniques of online and distance learning also needed changes to fulfill the needs of teachers and students, such as presentation, communication, asking questions and formulating answers, practicing the theory through various exercises, testing and feedback. There are several good practices popular now in online education, some of which are described throughout this article. Developing a complete set of skills in students is fundamental for facilitating the educational process and integrating them in the study and/or working groups, but also for preparing them for real life. This article presents some of the most important abilities to take into account by the educational system. However, most recommendations from instructors teaching online are presence-themed. Establishing a strong connection and feeling part of a supportive community is vital for students. Using video or Skype, video announcements instead of text, using the phone are all ways to a faster connection whenever doubts or questions arise. In addition, training and agility are on top of the priorities list: using technologies that help in achieving teaching objectives; teaching online does not mean that materials once used face-to-face are uploaded on an online platform; training is key whereas technology cannot work and there is a need for a back-up plan.

Keywords: learning, online, skills, technology, teaching methods, synchronous, asynchronous.
