Armenia Education Quality And Relevance Project – Development and Placement of Educational Portal

Detailed description of project

The Government of Armenia has received a World Bank credit for financing the Education Quality and Relevance Project (the Project), having as its main objective to improve the quality and increase the effectiveness of general education in the Republic of Armenia and to make education relevant to the emerging needs of the market economy.

One of the Project’s components is the Integration of ICT in general education. Four main issues have been laid down as cornerstones for the introduction of ICT across the Armenian education system: (1) infrastructure; (2) teacher training; (3) curriculum development; and (4) educational content (software and portal).

The overall goal of the projected Education Portal is to provide support to the on-going reforms in the education sector of Armenia. This basically implies creating a digital platform which would offer to all the actors in the Armenian education system relevant and timely information, curriculum materials, teaching and learning aids, interactive services and virtual communities.
