The first MOOC production studio in Russia
We started in 2013 when we produced the Bioinformatics course for the University of California, San Diego ordered by Pavel Pevzner, Ronald R. Taylor Professor of Computer Science and Director of the NIH Center for Computational Mass Spectrometry.

This course was the first one on Coursera created by a Russian production studio and gained over 35,000 students, who signed up to study on this course.

We then developed into three video studios in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg with a project team of MOOCs producers, designers and video editors. We have now produced over 70 courses.
We are able to handle complex projects and are not afraid to work with new trends
We know how to transfer on-campus course into online form maintaining academic environment specifics. We work with scientific materials, respect copyright, adjust our work process to lecturers' busy schedule, produce multilingual courses with foreign authors and have vast experience in outdoor shooting.
We produce courses for publication on various MOOC platforms
We know how to customize a course syllabus for the capabilities of a certain MOOC provider and how to gather a team of beta-testers and experts to evaluate the course before the launch. The courses of our production are published on Coursera, Iversity, and Russian MOOC providers such as Open Education and our platform Lektorium.
We take part in developing global open education
Lektorium is a part of the Open Education Consortium, а non-profit, social benefit organization operating worldwide. It is a global network of educational institutions and organizations, that supports an approach to education based on openness, including collaboration, innovation, collective development and use of open educational materials.

A particular committee of the Consortium monitors the evolution of massive open online courses. Committee members manage intellectual property in MOOCs, including using open licenses. They also develop the quality criteria of open content and supervise innovative practices, trends and open educational strategies in which MOOCs are used.
We develop individual visual identity for each project and create scenario for videolectures with instructors. We use effective type of shooting for different educational purposes and course audience: indoor and outdoor shooting, studio, motion design, animation, interview, neon board, video report etc.

selected projects
Kunstkamera Y
Saint Petersburg, 2015

Kunstkamera Y is a common special project of
paperpaper.media and the Kunstkamera, one of the richest ethnographical museums in the world. For the project we carried out special on-the-spot camerawork in the museum's repository, as we couldn't use additional lightning because of the exhibits' fragility.
The Changing Arctic
Tomsk State University, 2015

Nobel laureate
Terry Callaghan had a very busy schedule, so we filmed his course in record time — only several days. An English-speaking team was formed especially for him.

The course's Russian subtitles were created by our beta-testers.
Our partners
We produce online courses for the leading universities and schools of Russia and Europe, further education centres for teachers and developers of state educational programs. We work with museums and companies that support educational initiatives and social projects.
