How Is Alexei Beltyukov Furthering Education?

Alexei Beltyukov’s new SOLVY program is the latest in education technology that was released at the most recent EdSurge conference. Alexei is a brilliant businessman who uses his business acumen to invest in wonderful new projects. There are many new projects on his plate, but SOLVY has been created to help students who could be like Alexei one day. His commitment to education is the impetus behind this project, and SOLVY will change the way teachers and students approach previously-frustrating homework assignments.

#1: SOLVY Manages Homework For Everyone

SOLVY is a program Alexei helped create that manages homework assignments for both the teachers and the students. Teachers may enter their homework assignments into the system electronically, and students may access those assignments at any time. The assignments may be completed online, or the student may print the assignments to complete at home. Teachers may grade the assignments online, and the grades may be returned to students quickly.

#2: The Portal Is Available To Anyone

The SOLVY portal is open to anyone who has an Internet connection, and the SOLVY portal helps create a safe place for students to work. Teachers may send homework to students at any time, and a stream of comments may be sent to students any time they are needed. Someone who is interested in learning will find greater feedback, and the teacher will not feel as though they cannot offer the proper attention to each student.

#3: Alexei Has Created Expandable Software

Alexei is a wise businessman, and he has created software that can expand to the size of a small schoolhouse or a large school district. A large school district may put the software on every computer in the district, and teachers may begin using the software immediately. There are several different ways for people to use the program, and students may open an account that their teachers may use. Teachers who are approached about using SOLVY will find a new work to manage homework, and the portal will remain open for anyone to use at any time.

Alexei Beltyukov has committed his most recent project with education as About.me shows, and this project has created a way for people to learn more with in every class. Alexei wants teachers and students to feel free to work within SOLVY at any time, and his program allows for interaction between the teacher and the student that may not happen in class.  His official website has more.

Russia Curbs George Soros’ Influence.

 

 

George Soros is perhaps one of the most selfless and dedicated philanthropists around. He is the Founder and presiding chair of the Open Society Foundations. If you are not conversant with this group, it’s a network of partners and community-based organizations that do charitable work. These charitable organizations have spread around every continent gaining influence in over a hundred nations.

 

George Soros is also a respected scholar, thinker, and influencer of public opinion. He came up with the idea of an Open Society after observing and intervening in cases of oppression on various occasions. By then, Soros was a hedge fund manager with a growing career. He was making headlines in New York, and London and investors rushed to him to receive advice and make deals.

 

George Soros counts himself lucky to have achieved tremendous success in life. Five decades ago, he was an active student at the London School of Economics. A premier institution that produced the best brains in the world at the time. Some years before then, Soros was a young man in Budapest with a passion for education and a big dream. The struggles he encountered in his early life taught him great life lessons.

 

Soros acknowledges the need to accept the truths of life and the fact that nobody can understand all aspects of life. As a result, one must have a free thinking mind. A collection of such thinkers in society enables the people to appreciate diversity and, therefore, offer equal opportunities to all. Such ideological views form part of philosophical tenets behind the Open Society Foundations.

 

Furthermore, George realized the need to spread the idea across the world hence his retirement from hedge fund administration to philanthropy. He made substantial gains in establishing open societies around the world. However, it comes at a price that is controversy and criticism. For instance, his involvement in condemning the communist order in the Eastern bloc haunts him till today.

 

Being a pro-democrat, many of his projects in Ukraine and Northern Russia have been achieving monumental success. However, the Russian government does not support these ideas hence a conflict of interest. In 2015, the government had seen enough and acted by listing two of Soros’ projects as security threats.

 

The ban has recently forced authorities to start operations to wipe out any signs of the organizations. The latest victim was the library at Vorkuta Mining and Economic College where books donated by Soros were put on fire.
