In light of current circumstances, the University provides new conveniences for distance learning.
New restrictions are being currently introduced in Russia because of the increase in coronavirus infections. In particular, Moscow and Saint-Petersburg, two largest cities, decided to transfer all university to online teaching. Vice-Rector Dmitry Tayursky commented that Kazan University has been implemented hybrid learning, with combined online and on-site classes, since September. Keeping in mind the current situation, more classes may be shifted to the online format until early 2021.
As the demand for distance teaching grows rapidly, the University keeps providing new infrastructure. Comfortable cubicles have so far been installed at the Institute of Psychology and Education and the Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication. They are equipped with large TVs for video conferencing and have enough space for a person to be fully concentrated on the task.
“It's very convenient for our educators. Students can also study here in spare time, and they are content with the provided opportunity,” said Radif Zamaletdinov, Director of the Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication.
