RBC wins tender of Federal Education AgencyRBC wins tender of Federal Education Agency
The company will supply distance education centers in Yerevan (Armenia), Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), Mogilev (Belarus) and Dushanbe (Tadjikistan). RBC will provide the equipment alongside special software for use both during normal classes and distance courses handled via the Internet.
The project is carried out within a Russian federal program of supporting CIS integration processes in the field of education, approved by the Russian Government. Establishment of common educational standards in the CIS is an essential prerequisite for the further development of integration processes in the CIS countries. Based upon generally recognized principles of international law, the Russian Federation secures the right of its citizens to speak their native language and receive education in it.
Moreover, the appearance of distance education centers will help both Russians and Russian-speaking people in CIS countries maintain their cultural roots and receive education in their native language.
"We already possess expertise in the sphere of implementing distance education projects," General Director of RBC SOFT Alexey Kuzovkin said. "But it is for the first time that we will be dealing with such a large-scale project in four different countries at the same time. It is a great pleasure for us that our company will have a chance to support our countrymen living in the CIS states."
