The aim of the Alt-Shift Project is to develop a bilingual teaching environment for English-speaking and Russian-speaking physics students. The Alt-Shift lectures are given in English with simultaneous translation to Russian. The lectures are live streamed (via ZOOM) and recorded with two audio channels, so students may choose the desired language of instruction by their own. 
The lectures are a part of the regular undergraduate physics curriculum at Tomsk State University, but we are glad to invite interested students from other universities to join our online lectures or to download and watch the records from our website.

The access is free of charge, but as a small reward we would be happy to get a brief feedback from you (AltShiftFeedbackОбратная связь)
