Abstract—The use of modern multimedia technologies during
the educational process is becoming more and more specific due
to the multimedia penetration into different learning processes.
This article aims to identify the special aspects of using
multimedia technologies within the educational process in a
distance learning environment. The research methodology is
based on the stakeholders' theory, which identified the
following participants in the educational process: education
departments, the educational institutions' administration,
students and pupils, and teachers. The content analysis method
of the official websites of innovative educational platforms and
services was used to study the specifics of multimedia
applications. Results. The study identified the following special
aspects of using multimedia technology within the educational
process. Firstly, multimedia is actively integrated into
platforms and services that are a virtual educational
environment, ensuring the interests of all stakeholders.
Secondly, multimedia performs not only traditional functions in
learning, motivation, communication, and interactivity but also
innovative functions (learning management, analytics,
establishing social contacts, providing students' reflexion,
communication, interaction, conducting surveys). Hence, it
forms a full-fledged digital educational process in a virtual
learning environment. Thirdly, multimedia technologies are
actively used both in teaching students/pupils and also for the
training and professional development of teachers and
educators. The courses and training are offered to them via
educational platforms. The other features of using multimedia
include: performing many real-time education functions by
technologies; providing personalization of the educational
process, which is a foundation for developing an individual
education route for each student and pupil.
