This portal is constructed under the umbrella of TEMPUS MATHGEAR project for Modernization of Mathematics curricula for Engineering and Natural Sciences studies in South Caucasian Universities.
MATHGEAR is a three year project, with an overall objective to improve the quality of STEM education in South Caucasian region by modernizing and improving the curricula in the field of Mathematics. As a result the Project aims at modernization of the content and teaching methods by introducing principles of blended learning and mew educational technologies, to bring together best European and national practices in teaching math within STEM by developing and delivering modern math courses.
Project Coordinator: Universität des Saarlandes, Germany.

Tempus Project

TEMPUS is the European Union’s programme which supports the modernisation of higher education in the EU's surrounding area. Tempus promotes institutional cooperation that involves the European Union and Partner Countries and focuses on the reform and modernisation of higher education systems in the Partner Countries of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the Mediterranean region. It also aims to promote voluntary convergence of the higher education systems in the Partner Countries with EU developments in the field of higher education. With regards to the Western Balkans, Tempus contributes to preparing the candidate and potential candidate countries for a participation in the integrated Life Long Learning Programme.
In addition to promoting cooperation between institutions, Tempus also promotes a people-to-people approach.Tempus provides support to consortia of institutions composed mainly of universities or university associations. Non-academic partners can also be part of a consortium.
The Tempus programme is implemented in close coordination with the Erasmus Mundus programme which provides scholarships to third country students allowing them to participate in top-level Master courses and Doctorate programmes outside the EU.

Packages used in Armenian's E-Learning Platforms

Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) has been used, which is a free open-source learning management system or e-Learning platform, that serves educators and learners across the globe.more..

Mathbridge package which is the first Pan-European e-Learning platform for online bridging courses in mathematics. Math-Bridge allows teachers and students to interact with thousands of mathematical learning objects available in seven languages. Users of Math-Bridge can select one of many pre-defined courses, build their own courses or use the adaptive course generation tool.more..

International Standards

European Society for Engineering Education (SEFI) standard will be adopted and used for all mathematical courses in the two mentioned portals (mathbridge and elearning-asnet). SEFI is the largest network of higher engineering education institutions (HEIs) and educators in Europe. It has eight main competences which are:

1. Thinking mathematically: Recognition and understanding of mathematical problems, thier concepts, limitations etc
2. Reasoning mathematically: Ability to understand and assess an already existing mathematical argumentation, distinguish between different kinds of mathematical statements and building a chains of logical arguments.
3. Posing and solving mathematical problems: Ability to identify and solve mathematical problems.
4. Modeling mathematically: The ability to analyze and work in existing models and the ability to “perform active modeling”.
5. Representing mathematical entities: Understand and use mathematical representations and to know their relations, advantages and limitations.
6. Handling mathematical symbols and formalism: Understand symbolic and formal mathematical language and its relation to natural language as well as the translation between both
7. Communicating in, with, and about mathematics: Ability to understand mathematical statements made by others and on the other hand the ability to express oneself mathematically in different ways.
8. Making use of aids and tools: Knowledge about the aids and tools that are available as well as their potential and limitations.
