Abstract (English):
Modern requirements for educational technologies are flexibility and adaptability, with the consideration of the student’s individual characteristics, learning style and basic competencies. The most important resource is time, therefore, shortening the training time and obtaining the most useful and complementary professional competencies and knowledge is an urgent and important task. The article discusses the concept of metadesign as a means for building learning paths, and examines the design and platform application based on its principles. Implementing metadesign principles is demonstrated on the example of the educational trajectory while training software developers. Forming the learning paths within the trajectory using the created educational platform is considered. The functional requirements for the educational platform are stated. The principles of building an educational trajectory within the framework of the platform using modern educational trends and simulators are described.
