Hybrid Program

The AVC Hybrid Education Program blends in-class and online learning and supplements traditional teaching methods with innovative, technology-based resources. This program was first introduced at the Ohannesian Armenian School in Sharjah, UAE in 2009.


An entire classroom can sign up for any of the courses offered by AVC. Following a consensus between AVC and school administration, the local teacher and AVC online instructor collaborate throughout the course to help students achieve maximum results.


The technical requirements include a computer lab or classroom premises, a personal computer for each student or a projector and a screen to demonstrate the lesson to the class.

Who Can Apply Schools that wish to introduce innovative and attractive learning methods into their curricula, as well as supplement the program with additional resources. Community leaders wishing to organize Armenian Studies classes for their community members are also welcome to apply.

School or community representatives may apply to become AVC Certified Teachers. The aim of the program is to train teachers in the pedagogical and technical aspects of e-learning, assuming they already have prior knowledge in the subject matter that they intend to teach. The training equips the teacher with the methodological, theoretical and practical knowledge to teach an online or hybrid course. 
A certificate is issued to those participants who successfully complete the training program.

Read what our students and alumni say about their experience with AVC.
Eric Grigoryan AVC student, Georgia

AVC creates great opportunities for every Armenian to learn our language and culture. Now I can proudly say that I’m Armenian because I can read, write, and speak in my mother tongue.

Janice Okoomian AVC student, USA

I am learning Armenian because I want to see the world through a new lens and taste the full Armenian lexicon on my lips.  I know that the words I am speaking are the same ones that my grandparents and great-grandparents used every day, and I imagine myself closer to them now through the sound and meaning of all the words, the phrases, the sentences I am learning.

Joseph Syren AVC student, USA

The Armenian Virtual College has been such a blessing to me, because very few resources exist to learn Armenian. AVC has given me the chance to learn Armenian with the help of a native speaker as a teacher.

Halle Butvin Smithsonian Institution, USA

The Vayots Dzor e-book puts a tremendous amount of information at your fingertips – whether historical, cultural or simply practical. The format is user-friendly and immensely accessible. I know that the next time I have free time while working in Armenia, I’ll be using the e-book to navigate my way to explore some of the region’s lesser-known treasures.
