KTAK (Կրթական տեխնոլոգիաների ազգային կենտրոն), also known as the "National Center of Educational Technologies" is a program formed by the World Bank "Educational Quality and Relevance" project and the Armenian government's Department of Education and Science. Together they have established an informative online portal for Armenian schools known as the "Armenian Educational Portal".
One of KTAK's programs is the "Mobile Internet Computer Station"(MICS) that sends a travelling computer lab to rural and remote areas around Armenia. MICS provides computer and Internet classes in the back of its truck. The station is connected to a satellite and has 7 laptop computers as well as a flat-screen television for instruction.
Upon the HRI Team's departure, MICS spent two weeks in Akhpradzor and continued to run Computer and Internet courses for the students.
KTAK will be installing Internet connectivity for the Akhpradzor school in December 2011.
