HSE University Opens Up Its Online Courses to Students and Staff
From October 24, students and staff of HSE University have free access to the university’s 200+ online courses through the SmartLMS system without the use of practical or assessment materials. The courses cover a wide range of topics, including film studies, psychology, machine learning, and game theory.
HSE University is more than its four campuses in Moscow, St Petersburg, Perm, and Nizhny Novgorod—it is a modern online university that unites students, lecturers, and industry experts and partners. While digital technologies and tools in education, science, and management continue to develop, HSE University acknowledges the importance of maintaining the traditionally high academic standards of a classical university.
Online courses have been part of the educational process at HSE University since 2014. The quality of the university’s remote-learning resources is highly rated by experts and students alike; the average rating is 4.7 out of 5.
Among the 200+ available courses are:
Public Economics, which provides an overview of the central themes of public economics and the role of government as a mechanism of resource allocation which complements and augments markets. The course focuses on concepts, logic, and ideas, rather than methods of analysis.
Introduction to Formal Concept Analysis, in which students learn about tools for understanding data, data analysis and knowledge acquisition techniques, the theoretical foundations of formal concept analysis, and FCA-based approaches to clustering and dependency mining.
Introduction into General Theory of Relativity, which serves as an introduction to the General Theory of Relativity through practical examples. Students of the course have access to complementary materials designed to help them understand certain aspects of the Special Theory of Relativity, Classical Electrodynamics, and calculational tools.
Full access to the assessed course materials is provided automatically when the course is added to the student’s individual curriculum. Access to SmartLMS utilises one’s university account data. You can sign up to online courses independently here.
