In autumn 2016 one of the most respectable universities in Russia Moscow institute of physics and technology (MIPT) launched online Master degree program «Modern combinatorics». It was an absolutely online course, the first case in Russia. Students have to come to university only once — for a defence of diploma.
MIPT turned to Examus to provide online learners a convenient and cost-effective alternative to testing centers while ensuring the integrity of the online exam. So MIPT has launched a reliable and comfortable distance education offering for adults who work and have a little time for education.
The university believes this program could become the model for online programs of the future.
National Open Education Platform (NOEP) is a high-tech educational platform that provides open access to the best online courses of Russian most world renowned universities. There are more than 400 000 people taking courses online through the NOEP. More than 211 open online-courses are available.
Russian universities accept credits for the courses taken through the platform and provide all the successful finalists with certificates and diplomas. That's why reliable proctoring solution was a matter of a crucial importance for the platform.
Examus was chosen as the most flexible, secure and cost-effective solution. It could fit lots of exam scenarios while ensuring the integrity of the results.
As a plus full outsourcing of proctoring service including communications with universities and students allows the NOEP to reduce the burden on technical support and stuff of the platform.
Sberbank Corporate University is the only Russian organization represented in four leading global associations of corporate universities (EFMD, ECLF, ATD, GlobalCCU) and the only Russian organization that has prestigious international professional accreditations with CLIP, EOCCS and Global CCU Compliance.
SCU has over 100 programs in its portfolio, aimed at developing the hard and soft skills of some 35,000 Sberbank managers. Its training approach is unique thanks to an effective balance of in-class, distance and e-learning formats, including the SCU Virtual School.
In November 2017 SCU launched a new service – remote control of online exams provided by Examus proctoring service. The main task was to optimize the process of remote testing at Sberbank and to provide employees with an access to exams anytime anywhere. Secondly it was important to make the Bank confident about online exams results. Amount of test-takers from different parts of Russia was about 1 200 employees and proctoring service was the most cost-effective tool.
