How are courses taught through AVC?

AVC students learn new material on a weekly basis using multimedia (text, audio, and visual media) lessons and regularly confer with their online teacher and classmates.

In addition to weekly lessons, the students have access to automated study tools, games, assignments, course calendars, syllabi, quizzes, midterms, finals and grade books. Moreover, discussion forums, emails, live chat, audio and video communication options provide the students with the opportunity to better connect with their virtual teachers and classmates, while forging friendships with Armenians from across the globe.

Who teaches AVC courses?

The multimedia courses are authored by renowned topic experts from Armenia and are reinforced by international pedagogical experts in online learning. The learners are supported by online instructors (teachers), who provide distance guidance, drive discussion forums, respond to student inquiries, and grade assignments, midterms, and finals.

What are the types of students at AVC?

1. Synchronous Learning
Regular students for credit
will receive three credits for each course upon completing the coursework per the syllabus and guidelines provided by the online instructor during the orientation week. The expected weekly workload for a regular student is 5-8 hours depending on the course.
Auditors are expected to maintain the same schedule of reading as regular students and to take the weekly quizzes. Auditors are highly encouraged to participate in group projects but are not expected to take examinations. Auditors will get a pass/fail grade.

2. The Asynchronous Self-Study Program courses are open for credit and non-credit offerings. The enrollment for ASSP courses is open at all times, on a rolling basis.  To receive credits the students must take a midterm and final exam.
