- Head:Online Media and Mobile Applications Office / Mobile Apps Unit
- Maxim Nemkevich has been at HSE University since 2019.
Conducting online lectures and research seminars on Zoom, providing assistance and useful instructions to the university community—all this is necessary for a smooth transition to remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past two weeks, various HSE departments have done all of this in order to provide their students with online instruction. The IT Office particularly felt the weight of this large task. HSE News spoke with digital service staff about what they have managed to do in such a short time frame.
After transitioning to online learning, HSE students decided to recreate the HSE University campus in Minecraft, the legendary computer game where players can envision and design their own buildings.
Mobile apps have long been a part of everyday life at HSE University. The HSE App, for example, tops the list of HSE students’ favourite apps — according to IT Office surveys, almost 47% of the respondents have it installed. The app HSE.Navigation, which was launched in December last year, entered the Top 50 educational apps in the App Store ranking on its second day and garnered 2,500 downloads in three weeks.
