2051 educational institutions have joined the Azerbaijan Educational Network (AEN) so far. The educational institutions, that joined the Network, have been provided with high-speed Internet and have gained the opportunity to establish high-quality communication with one another and other agencies of the Ministry of Education within the Network.
The Azerbaijan Educational Network (AEN) paves the way for the creation of a more effective learning process in the country and ensures the transfer of the positive experience in education, regardless of distance. The teachers and pupils of schools in remote areas have the opportunity to increase their knowledge by using electronic resources through the AEN. At the same time, access has been limited to web sites, deemed harmful to schoolchildren, through the internet filtering system of the "Websense" program used in the AEN.
At the same time, 3000 Monoblock Lenovo desktop computers, 70 laptops, 153 projectors and 183 interactive electronic boards have been distributed throughout the country with the aim of providing ICT equipment to educational institutions during the months of October and November, 2015. During the process of providing ICT equipment to educational institutions, new equipment is given to the teaching staff and administrative staff members, who achieved good results in the evaluation of the trainings held to improve literacy in the field of information and communication technologies.
