All students will be able to study and master the subjects taught in the learning process using the existing password and access to the PLATONUS system in accordance with the schedule on the principle of online and offline. Teachers and students were provided with the necessary instructions for using the system. During the week, student achievements are implemented by teachers in the PLATONUS system. At the same time, in order to conduct video lectures (webinars), I recommend that students and teachers make full use of platforms such as ZOOM, MS365, Google, Yandex, mail.ru, as well as the National Open Education Platform of Kazakhstan (mooks.kz).
