Nowadays the transition to online education is imperative. Under a pandemic situation, universities are regarded as the most prepared institutions to apply e-learning massively. This paper discusses the forced transition to e-learning related to the overall educational process in higher education. The common use of Internet and social networks changed the motivation and cognitive practices of learners thus producing new didactical and methodological issues to be addressed. To discuss these aspects we share the experience of New Bulgarian University in conducting e-learning and analyse some of its specific features. Technological solutions that facilitate online classes and communications are considered. Some matters concerning the role of instructor’s presence and immediacy in the virtual classroom are also examined.
