Abstract

Instructors are frequently confronted with different challenging issues in the classroom; however, the outbreak of COVID-19 brought a different set of obstacles that emerged due to the inevitable online teaching. The Macedonian educational system had to adjust to the new teaching-learning environment, and professors had to quickly find the answer to a crucial question, how to teach online as effectively as face-to-face. This study is part of more extensive research based on students’ perceptions of the E-learning process at the Faculty of Economics – Prilep in the academic year 2020-2021. The paper analyses and discusses the recommendations of forty-five Business English students, which were part of the survey. Although most of the participants in this research prefer traditional learning, they believe that blended learning can stimulate a higher quality educational process and provide suggestions on improving the E-learning process. Student recommendations include conveying minimal information, using simple fonts, avoiding stylistic elements in the presentations, using mobile apps, and using virtual reality with flexible lesson plans. Most recommendations are general and thus not limited to Business English courses only; therefore, instructors should consider implementing them for different courses.
