Online studies

Online branch in Kazakhstan Is distance learning program that is also developed by STEP Academy

The main difference between our online classes and those of other online schools is innovative approach and gamification. Online learning is very similar to actual classrooms, having the same lesson structure with 80% of time spent on practice. Students see their teachers, actively communicate and watch the whole process, while the tutor can see the students working and is able to assist. All of it is live, not pre-recorded. As a result, there is no boundary between the students and their teacher. Those who study well get crystal bonuses, which they can later exchange for various gifts.

Online studies are very suitable for people who are determined to be a part of IT, but nit able to attend the Academy.
