Abstract: The goal of the paper was to identify which tools and methods were used by teachers for classes conducted in the remote mode during the pandemic. The study was conducted with the application of a survey questionnaire distributed among students and teachers. The survey for students aimed to find out about their perception of their teachers’ involvement and competence in using e-learning tools, as well as students’ preferences regarding individual tools and their usefulness. Teachers answered the questions on how they see their e-learning competence and which tools they found helpful or insufficient. By comparing both perspectives in findings of the surveys we were able to identify similarities and differences in preferences as to tools and methods used in remote learning. On this basis we selected the tools and methods with the highest potential for further, in-depth study. Element determining the proper and effective implementation of online classes is lecturers’ involvement. As the result of the teachers’ positive attitude, the problems that emerged during remote education could be overcome. It turned out that it was possible to master the principles of the use of platforms, both those dedicated by the university and others that the students found useful, even in the highly accelerated mode, where a shift from classroom to virtual teaching took only a few days.
