The deadline for accepting applications for the Stepic Challenge has been extended until September 20

    August 25 was the last day of accepting applications for the Stepic Challenge open online courses project competition . Since the competition in terms of timing unsuccessfully coincided with the period of summer vacations, in recent days we have received many requests from teachers and universities to slightly postpone the deadline. We decided to extend the acceptance of applications until September 20 inclusive, but for now we can summarize the preliminary results.


    The competition received 94 applications, of which 66 in Russian, 28 in English. Most applications, about 70%, came from university teachers, about 20% from school teachers, and another 10% from students and independent authors. It is nice that there are applications from different regions and cities of Russia - Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Voronezh, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Arkhangelsk, Yekaterinburg and others.

    The list of topics for the courses submitted for the competition today looks like this.
