Abstract

The research objective is to analyze the contemporary Russian platforms for massive online education, which provide the opportunity to master skills and obtain knowledge in compliance with the conception of polytechnic education: Open Education, Universarium, Lektorium, and Intuit. The research method is comparative analysis by criteria – number of visitors, area of training, target group, content specificity, including interaction means, systems of certification of the acquired knowledge. The authors come to the conclusion that most of the courses offered by the Universarium platform are aimed at schoolchildren, university entrants, and teachers. Open Education specializes in elaborating courses in compliance with federal state educational standards. Intuit specializes in IT sphere and provides additional education issuing documents of established form. Lektorium has significantly increased traffic since 2017, offering high quality content from the leading educational, commercial, and public organizations. An important characteristic common for all the studied platforms is a large variety of courses and educational programs, including those aimed at developing supra-disciplinary universal soft skills, and elaboration and publication of MOOCs for various target groups.
