An Educational Web Portal to be Set up for Graduates of Russian Schools Abroad
Study in Russia educational web portal for graduates of schools from CIS states and other nations gets rolling in 2020. Students of Russian schools abroad will now have an opportunity to access the Knowledge Cloud platform, already utilised by Russian school students. The project is backed by Rossotrudnichestvo as part of the Digital Economy of the Russian Federation nationwide programme.
The primary goal of the project is to attract foreign nationals to study at Russian universities to get higher education and subsequently work in Russia in a wide range of professions. Moreover, the project is aimed to raise the prestige of Russian digital education.
Since all the data are saved to the cloud, the students can study when and where they want to and switch between their devices at school and at home. The portal will have two sections:
- Information resource, where all the necessary information about the learning process in Russian universities for international students is collected, such as courses, description of the filing and admission procedure, costs, regulations and requirements for the final attestation.
- The Knowledge Cloud educational platform containing online educational courses for international applicants to prepare themselves to the final attestation, including in major subjects.
Knowledge Cloud educational online platform is intended to help incorporate digital educational resources into classroom activities. The digital content in the Knowledge Cloud is diverse and comes in a variety of formats, including interactive presentations, virtual laboratory research projects, unified state exam simulators, activities for self-guided learning, etc.
Students will have access to digital content for grades 9 to 11 in all school subjects, including materials for main and unified state exams. The users will also be able to get connected to the Russian as a Foreign Language course.
The Knowledge Cloud is intended to get the teachers engaged, as well. The project enables a teacher to “guide” a student by the individual educational path with the aid of various interactive tasks (review, self-guided and laboratory activities). Students can control their learning paths depending on their interests and level of knowledge, and do the activities at their own pace.
