Abstract

In according with the situation created by the pandemics of the world [4,6,7,8,9,10], the Covid-19 viruses were affected the all fields of activity from the all domains, like as: industrial domains, tourism, commercial, even of the educational system at all levels [1,2]. In this context our university, George Emil Palade University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science and Technology of Targu Mures, it had to move from the classical educational system to approach of the new online modular system. This forced adaptation presents a lots of problems, especially of the all specializations within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, where there are practical activities that involve laboratories with practical execution they cannot be performed by the online system. After an experience gained of almost 4 months of online activity, more several negative aspects are configured to be analyzed in order to find constructive solutions for optimizing the online educational system [1]. The present paper proposes to identification of a questionnaire addressed for the students as well as to the teachers from the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology of UMFST “G.E.Palade” of Tg.Mures. Following the analysis of the all results of the questionnaire, the deficiencies of the problems raised by the technical disciplines that require phisicals practical applications in laboratory classes will be identified, respectively new directions for the development of modular online education will be identified representing the only alternative of the onsite classic education in this situation.
