First Web Workshop Held in Caucasus

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The Web-Workshop was created and is housed in the American University of Armenia under the Internet Access and Education Program effective in Armenia’since 1998. This program enables one to take courses in web-mastering free of charge and then create their own web-sites and thus far–250 of such sites have already been created. This is the first such facility to be extended to Transcaucasia

There are six centers providing free access to the Web-Workshop computers in Armenia today. This number will increase soon as 10 regional web-workshops are expected to be established. The network created under the program may become "the simplest model of building modern information society in Armenia"–Program Coordinator Grigor Vahanian said.

Forty authors of web-sites are united in the Webmasters Club. Their sites have already elicited some international response. The Turks–for example–were surprised to learn that there are songs about the Genocide sung in the Turkish language.
