Online Courses as an Integral Part of HSE’s Educational Process

Online courses are a mandatory component of the academic curriculum of every HSE student. This may include massive online open courses (MOOCs) or courses presented in a ‘blended learning’ format, when students are able to study a part of a subject online.

In 2017, almost 13,000 HSE students took part in 151 online courses under the blended learning format, while 1,530 students took 128 MOOCs, out of which 90% were presented in English.

A third of the courses pursued by students were developed by HSE Online. Furthermore, the most popular platform for HSE learners was Coursera, which was selected by 66% of students, followed by Russia’s National Open Education Platform (NOEP) (15% of learners). HSE Online’s courses are available on both platforms. To date, HSE Online has developed and successfully launched 90 courses on the Coursera platform. HSE is currently ranked fourth among all universities featured on this platform in terms of total courses. A total of 53 HSE Online courses have been published on the NOEP.

Both the authors and assistants of online courses regularly receive expert feedback from the HSE Online team. Specialists from the HSE eLearning Office also provide consultation to teachers, as well as develop methodological recommendations in regards to the structure, descriptions and programmes of online courses in line with the requirements of the given educational platform. Teachers engaged in the development of their own courses can consult with the Office’s experts in regards to how to put presentations and illustrative materials together or get ready to film their online courses. You can find more information in the “To Authors of Online Courses” section.

Teachers at HSE have a wide range of technical options if they are interested in developing their own online courses for students enrolled at HSE. The eLearning Office operates the OneButton self-recording studio. With the help of special equipment, teachers can film their own courses in high definition video independently, without the involvement of any operators or editors. You can find out more about this service at the ‘OneButton Studio’ page. Teachers can publish the final versions of their online courses for students on the LMS or Moodle platform.
