The school portal “University Avenue”
is an online platform devoted to the extracurricular activities of school children. Here pupils take part in quizzes and competitions, communicate with peers via blogs and forums, join projects and research activities developed by TSU professors or offer a project to receive some help in its implementation. Moreover school teachers can use this portal for their needs. There is an opportunity to create a class community for discussing various subjects, tasks, and exchanging information.
