Distance learning in the modern world is becoming an important form of education regardless of the location of the educational institution and the physical capabilities of the student. The relevance of the research is determined by the need to obtain new theoretical knowledge about the psychological and pedagogical foundations of distance learning in order to improve it and increase its effectiveness in the conditions of the pandemic and exit from it. The purpose is to analyse the psychological and pedagogical foundations of learning using distance technologies exemplified by the Pedagogical Class of the Saratov State University. The article defines the main characteristics of distance learning and learning using distance technologies. The authors define the specificity of these forms of learning as derived from the convergence of campus and distance learning. The research investigates the case study of the Pedagogical Class in order to establish the main psychological and pedagogical foundations and effects of learning with the use of distance technologies. The article highlights the main values and principles of distance learning: the value of general accessibility – the principle of openness; the value of personal development and individualistic orientation of all the content – the principle of a scientific approach, the principle unifying academic knowledge and accessibility; the value of a direct contact between subjects of education – the principle of an open dialogue, which is implemented through different communication channels; the values of university education and traditional culture – the principle of personal development, academic socialization of personality. The authors make a conclusion about the potential of using distance learning technologies to achieve acme in education.
