InternetUrok (Russian: ИнтернетУрок) is educational online platform headquartered in Moscow, Russia. The platform includes an online library for school kids, their parents and teachers and a private online school from grades 1 to 11. The platform was founded by Mihail Lazarev in 2009.


In 2020, the library contained over 4,700 school lessons which include animations, illustrations, links to external sources, synopses and interactive tests for self-examination.[1] The service provides feedback to learners who can ask their questions the teachers and get quick responses. The materials are constantly updated and replenished, the site is free of advertising. Most of the materials on the portal are in the public domain.

InternetUrok Home School is a fully online private school offering Russian secondary education for students all over the world since 2014. There are three study formats to choose from:

  • Solo — students have access to the library, the curriculum and video consultations. For those who wish to deepen their knowledge on some subjects while attending the traditional school and those who missed or didn’t understand the topic at their public school.
  • With teachers — students complete homework which is then checked and graded by teachers. For those who wish to learn additionally to the traditional school instead of receiving assistance from tutors and those who wish to switch to homeschooling.
  • With enrollment — students are enrolled at partner schools and are able to get a school certificate upon graduation.

Since 2017, students and their parents may get assistance in solving educational and administrative issues from personal mentors.[2]
