Russian University Launches Education Cloud
Russia’s North Eastern Federal University (NEFU) teaches over 20,000 students, covering subjects including engineering, sciences, humanities and social sciences, mathematics and information sciences and medicine. Based in the city of Yakutsk, it operates five satellite sites across the Republic of Sakha. The University worked with Intel Corporation, Inline and RSC to move all its educational content and applications onto a cloud-based platform so that students and lecturers can access all the resources they need from any location. Not only has this delivered a richer learning experience, but it helps the University to reach students in more rural areas at no additional cost.
