The Rector of the Chuvash State University A. Yu. Aleksandrov: "I am absolutely Sure That Together We Will Overcome All Adversity! »

Wednesday, 08.04.20


In connection with the COVID-19 epidemic, students of our University, as well as all universities in the country, have switched to a distance learning format. How did students and teachers react to the changes, and what new experience did they get? This will be told by the rector of the Chuvash State University named after I. N. Ulianov, Andrey Yurievich Aleksandrov.

- Andrey Yurievich, the coronavirus attacked the countries all over the world,  without declaring war. We are all used to living in a new reality, which dictates its own conditions to universities as well.

The whole world, different states, individual localities, families and each person face this deadly test that came so suddenly. The new situation dictated to us the need to rebuild the usual way of life. Certain restrictions have been introduced, without which it is simply impossible to avoid even more unfortunate consequences, as is clearly understood today  by every sane person.

The entire education system has also found itself in unusual conditions; luckily there is a world wide web – the Internet, a communication tool through which the University implements distance education technologies today. 

I must say that the meetings of the rector's office have been held in videoconference mode since this week.

- Please tell us what difficulties both participants of the distance learning format had to face.

There were no special difficulties in switching to the distance learning format. The University at that time already had some experience in implementing mixed learning in a number of areas on the Moodle platform. Teachers of our University  created more than 1,500 courses. 

However, as a result of the complete transformation of the educational process and immersion in distance learning, it became obvious that some teachers do not have enough skills to conduct online classes. But these issues are feasible, and in the near future we plan to improve the competence of our teachers in the field of IT technologies.   

We conducted a survey of students in Vkontakte network about the problems they face with the distance learning format. The main difficulty for the young people was the lack of the usual "live" communication with teachers. Sometimes there were problems with Internet connection, which is understandable: the surge in network load was enormous. There is a lack of practical knowledge and skills in areas (specialties) that involve a large number of laboratory classes. First of all, we are talking about engineering faculties, and even the most modern simulators will not replace "live" practice for future doctors.

- What advantages do students note in online pairs?

Students noted interactivity as a positive aspect of online learning. For example, a training format such as webinars provides many opportunities for successful learning and communication with the teacher and classmates in real time. Online formats make the learning process more exciting and useful in terms of acquiring additional skills in the field of IT technologies.

- All students are probably concerned with the question of how to pass the summer session, defend a course or a thesis…

For the convenience of teachers and students, we have launched a webinar server on the electronic schedule portal. This service is designed for conducting online classes in accordance with the schedule of training sessions and exam sessions, its functionality includes the opportunity to create webinars for consultations and online defense of course papers (projects).

As part of the state final certification of students, a mechanism for the protection of diploma works (projects) using distance educational technologies has been developed. The protection procedure is prescribed in the local acts of the University, which will soon be brought to each participant of the educational process and posted on the official website of the University.

- In my opinion, the world after COVID-19 pandemic will be different, changes will also affect the higher education system in terms of distance learning format…

It is too early to draw final conclusions, but this acute situation will definitely enable national governments to assess the readiness of the society and the state for emergency conditions, including  sustainability of health and education systems. Today, universities, teachers, and students can analyze the pros and cons of online learning in real time.  Life itself has forced us to use previously unknown programs and services in the educational process, and to subscribe to online courses in open access. Teachers have dramatically stepped up their efforts to pass their teaching materials into a digital form. Speaking about the future of distance education "after the pandemic", I want to note that new formats of high-quality online education will undoubtedly arise, and the proportion of distance courses will increase.

- Andrey Yurievich, what would you wish our students and teachers who live in conditions of self-isolation?

I would like to express my gratitude to our students, teachers, and staff for their patience and understanding, and for their adequate response to the difficulties that our University faced at this difficult time for the country! I am grateful to everyone who has shown diligence to ensure the sustainable development of the Chuvash State University, and I wish everyone good health! I am absolutely sure that together we will overcome all adversity!

Entrepreneurs and retail chains are encouraged to expand the opportunities for remote ordering of goods and delivering them to consumers' homes.

Residents of Chuvashia older than 60 years will have to be quarantined. "The regime of self-isolation will help older people who are in a special risk group to protect themselves from possible infection," – said the acting head of Chuvashia Oleg Nikolaev. At the same time, the order of the head of the region recommends that telecommunication companies do not stop providing cellular services and Internet connections to citizens over the age of 60 years with a zero or negative balance.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Chuvash Republic will provide assistance to the executive authorities of the Chuvash Republic and local self-government bodies in implementing measures to counteract the spread of a new coronavirus infection.

Oleg Nikolaev also ordered to provide  medical workers and other persons who are in contact with the sick or have signs of COVID-2019 with personal protective equipment (masks) as a matter of priority. It is proposed to encourage the work of doctors and other workers involved in rounds, providing assistance to citizens who are in self-isolation, elderly people living alone and the disabled.

"The situation with coronavirus in our region stays under control, but since the risk of detecting new infected people is high, we are forced to take additional preventive measures to ensure the safety of residents of the Chuvash Republic. I hope for  understanding from the business community. I also want to thank all the medical workers who are on the front line today and selflessly work to prevent the widespread spread of this disease," Oleg Nikolaev said.

Keep your Distance!

Wednesday, 25.03.20

A lesson given by the assistant of the Department of Russian as a foreign language E. S. Alekseeva begins with setting up a laptop:

"I send my students – foreign students of the preparatory department – tasks in advance in the chat, and they send me completed homework. And through a special app, we communicate in video mode, analyze errors, and practice "live" speech.

Since March 17, our University has temporarily switched to distance learning. Since March 23, teachers have also been passed to a flexible work schedule. They use a whole range of technical opportunities to organize "remote" classes. As the head of the educational and methodological department M. Yu. Mitrofanova told, these are classic lectures, test tasks, cases and tasks located on the Moodle platform, which also hosts all working programs, methodological materials, and a webinar and video conference service that enables to read lectures online and get immediate feedback, use a virtual whiteboard to upload and display presentations, office documents, create discussion rooms, etc. Video broadcasts on Vkontakte and YouTube are popular for conducting online lectures and seminars. Group chats are created in messengers and social networks, where students can ask questions, record audio messages, or submit their assignments for current review in a special system of forums.

"I prefer to read lectures to students online in the web conferencing of Federal University network of Russia RUNNet", – the Dean of the medical faculty, V. N. Diomidova, shares her experience. – During the lesson, you can use presentations that are available to participants on the other side of the screen. Students can ask questions and get answers in the chat mode. Technical means of the University enable to conduct a lecture as comfortable as possible for both teachers and students."

Yulia Adyukova, a student of Russian and Chuvash Philology and Journalism Faculty, notes: "We understand that we are forced to study in a remote mode because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, going to University and getting knowledge in the classroom is much better, but safety is more important. How are our classes going? Mostly in video mode. The teacher gives a lecture, we write it down. If we have any questions, we can ask them right away. Practical classes are held in the same way."

To solve any questions about distance learning, the University has a hotline (tel. 45-20-27), where anyone can call. Also, to help students and teachers, a special banner "Distance education" has been created on the University's website, where you can find all information on implementing distance technologies at the University.
