Distance Education Programme

Since December 2014, The ISEC NAS RA has been implementing additional distance learning programs, within the framework of which some public groups were able to receive distance education in the ISEC. Among the commitments undertaken by the Republic of Armenia on Bologna reform, an important place is allocated to continuing education. In the current stage of science and technology development, the distance learning is widespread in the field of continuing education, which allows interested people to receive relevant education or participate in online courses in convenient place and during convenient hours. The peculiarity of the distance learning is that there are no time restrictions, the classes are carried out synchronous and asynchronous, the lecturer and student don’t have to meet each other in real life, communication is happening online via forums, video conferences, and more. One of the advantages of distance learning is that by creating a course it is possible to constantly apply it in the learning process, if the course is regularly upgraded. The ISEC strategic development plan includes the expansion of distance education which means that in the learning process it is envisaged to include more teachers and offer more courses. In the center, there is a great interest in distance education as it gives the opportunity to receive quality education and important knowledge.

Over the years the ISEC NAS RA staff has implemented a number of activities aimed at development and expansion of distance learning.
