For lecturers

Study Process and Work Organisation at MRU 

Studies at the University will be carried out by contact (in University classrooms), in accordance with the health safety requirements established by the State-Level Emergency Operations Manager.  

If, due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, you are unable to come to Lithuania or are in self-isolation, we will make it possible to study remotely. The classes will be broadcasted in real time (online) according to an approved schedule; the assesments will be also held online. 

In order to ensure the safety of the University community and the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 disease, only the person who meets one of the following requirements will be able to participate in contact study activities: 

  1. A person has been vaccinated with one of the vaccines recognised in the European Union: “Comirnaty” (Pfizer), “COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna”, “COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen” or “Vaxzevria” (AstraZeneca); 
  2. A person has been vaccinated with a vaccine not recognised in the EU but have received a positive response to semiquantitative SeroCP and quantitative SeroCP test in less than 60 days in which anti-S, anti-S1 or anti-RCD IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 are detected; 
  3. A person carried out a SARS-CoV-2 PCR test not more than 72 hours earlier (from the moment of sampling) and got a negative result.
  4. A person had COVID-19 disease (coronavirus infection) where the diagnosis has been confirmed on the basis of a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test or antigen test and no more than 210 days have elapsed since the positive test result. 

In all the above cases, a person must have one of the documents supporting these requirements or valid National Certificate or EU Digital COVID certificate.

From the 15th of November it is mandatory to wear medical mask or respirator.

Please be informed that starting from the 1st of December 2021 rules concerning the pandemic situation are changing: people who are not immunised will be only able to get their National Certificate after having PCR test. Please note that the rapid antigen test will not be considered valid for National Cetificate.

Key Tools for Distance Learning: Moodle Environment

What You Need to Know About the Moodle Platform

You do not have to worry about connecting to your subject course environment – MRU creates virtual studies course environments (according to the studies form) for lecturers and you are automatically included.

You will manage your taught subject course environment transferring and updating learning materials and organizing activities as outlined in the University’s ascribed Order.

All the information that is transferred into the studies course environment is saved. The following semester you will find the learning materials that were included previously and you will be able to change, update information, tasks, tests and other activities. Your subject course environments remain the same. Only students change.

How to Connect Students to the Subject Course Studies Environment?

Students in the current semester are automatically connected to the subject course studies environments (according to the studies plan). Having successfully completed the semester (positive evaluation) students are disconnected, but those having not completed (with academic debts) not.

Students returning from academic vacation and having to take exams can register to the studies course themselves or open a window and sign in with a key. More information available in the Moodle Handbook.

Students, studying according to the Erasmus programme, can sign up for studies courses themselves using the Erasmus sign-up key.
