The Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) in Vladivostok was the first to heed the recommendations of the federal Ministry of Education. For students, they created a plan for the transition to e-learning.

According to the press service of the university, EastRussia said that due to the risks of the spread of coronavirus, some university staff and students plan to gradually transfer to online training. The university emphasizes that e-learning has been widely introduced since 2018, so neither students nor employees should have problems with the transition to the network. 

Now all curricula and some courses are available completely on the online platform "Open Education". Also on the network there is access to the university’s scientific library, subscriptions to abstracts and scientific bases, manuals and other useful materials. According to the university, even without the introduction of quarantine measures, annually 13 thousand students master educational programs remotely.

The final decision on transferring students to e-learning will be made on March 17. Coronavirus non-proliferation control operations headquarters has been operating at the university since January 27.

Meanwhile, the North-Eastern Federal University in Yakutsk has already decided on distance learning. Similar measures were recommended to be taken by other educational institutions of Yakutia: the Arctic State Institute of Culture and Arts, the Churapchinsky Institute of Physical Culture and Sports, and the Yakut State Agricultural Academy.
