Collaboration of SPbSUT with transnational corporation Google

On April 30, 2020, an agreement on cooperation between the university and the transnational corporation Google was reached.

 The terms for creating digital educational environment in Russian educational organizations were indicated in the passport of the National Education Project. It is less than 5 years until the project completion, which is on 31.12.2024. However, the current situation forced to make adjustments to these plans.

 In connection with the spread of the COVID-2019 epidemic and the introduction of quarantine, it became necessary to switch to online education already now.

 The University actively holds online meetings via both domestic videoconferencing platforms - TrueConf, Mind, and foreign ones.

 Videoconferencing services offered by the telecom operator MegaFon are considered, as well as domestic videoconferencing solutions - Lifesize Cloud, Webinar.

 «Modern education is developing rapidly, and universities are playing an increasingly important role in society actively interacting with it. This is largely due to the cooperation of educational institutions with various organizations and companies, including such global giants as Yandex, Mail, and Google.»- said Vice-Rector for Digital Transformation, SPbSUT Anton Zarubin,

 

The current situation requires modern solutions. Thanks to the tremendous work done by the IT department, during the negotiations, an agreement was reached on cooperation between the university and the transnational corporation Google.

 Since the beginning of April, the university, along with its own infrastructure solutions and services of domestic companies, began using Google Meet tools for organizing video communications during classes. Teachers and students have already appreciated the advantages of the platform: stability, intuitiveness and ease of use.
