The article discusses the problem of modernizing a new generation foreign language electronic textbook as well as an electronic platform that organizes the entire educational process. The urgency of the problem lies in the fact that the need for an urgent transition to distance learning arisen all over the world has highlighted the shortcomings of the current Russian alternative electronic school education system. The purpose of the article is to identify its shortcomings and suggest ways to eliminate them. The main method is the examination of the Russian electronic educational system in the field of disciplines - German and English as foreign languages. The work of the authors of the article as experts of the educational platform "Moscow Electronic School" (MES) made it possible to combine the valuable information presented here about current electronic textbooks and collect observations about the content and technical components of the proposed scenarios of electronic lessons. The analysis concludes that MES is currently the most developed and demanded tool of the Russian electronic educational system. First of all, these include the creation of a unified interactive educational media space and the organization of synchronized work of the teacher and students in three formats: full-time, remote, full-time-distance. This implies the smooth interaction of three digital spaces: the screens of the teacher, the student, and the interactive whiteboard. The practical significance of the research results is based on identifying the main ways to merge the electronic textbook and the electronic platform that supports its operation.
