A tripartite memorandum of understanding was signed in the State College of Informatics of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Armenia between the National Center of Educational Technologies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Armenia, Softline International and the State College of Informatics of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Armenia.
"The first prerequisite for success in the field of information and communication technologies in Armenia is the training of qualified specialists in this field in educational institutions. Through cooperation with international companies in the field, we will be able to create an educational environment for our students in line with international standards and technological progress," said Artak Poghosyan, director of the National Center for Educational Technologies.
Director of the State College of Informatics, Robert Abrahamyan, said at a meeting with journalists that online courses have been a reality for a long time and are actively used by students. "It's just that they are mainly English-language, recently they are also Russian-language resources. I think that our potential in the field of information technologies and cooperation with leading international companies will allow us to have online Armenian language courses."
According to Abrahamyan, these courses can be used not only by students of the college, but also of other educational institutions.
Sargis Harutyunyan, director of "Softline International" company, also expressed his confidence that the joint educational programs will prepare the basis for the educational development of the sector and the implementation of more extensive programs.
