This paper deals with the after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the educational sphere. The authors aim to report the results of an observational study that was focused on the perceptions of virtual learning in students and teachers of Bogdan Khmelnytsky Melitopol State Pedagogical University during the first (March 2020) and the second (December 2020) lockdowns in Ukraine. The following objectives are set: to analyse scientific literature on virtual learning anxiety; to explore the participants‘ emotional state when studying/working online; to find out a list of digital tools, virtual platforms and messengers preferred by students and teachers; and to identify the most common challenges and benefits of virtual learning/teaching. In the study, anxiety in virtual learning is defined as a psychological state of a person caused by unawareness of modern digital technologies, lack of properly developed ICT skills, and misuse of virtual learning tools which result in distress, dissatisfaction and uncertainty. The authors come to the conclusion that technological and psychological training of both students and teachers should go in line and function as a holistic system in order to reduce virtual learning anxiety. Potential solutions to overcome the challenges and create an effective virtual learning community are given.
