This article aims to identify the benefits of the online platform for scientific and communicative interaction in HEIs during the pandemic. Pedagogical experiment during the academic year 2020/2021 was chosen as the main method of research, which included the study of the Mentimeter's effectiveness (online platform) and a students' survey at the Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts (KNUCaA). Results. The study showed that the use of the Mentimeter platform resources significantly increases the level of the student audience interest in the course material and during the study as a whole. This platform was involved by the teachers to work with students during the lecture or for educational purposes. Also, it was aimed to get feedback from students about the subject course content or the lecturer's methodological developments. Online surveys, created with the platform's help, allow establishing synchronous communication with the students during the lecture session remotely. Students' evaluation of the communication component of distance education under such conditions has higher rates. Communicative practices, which implementation into educational process contributes to the formation of open, communicative educational environment in modern institution of higher education, under long-distance education are of great importance not only for learning.
