              e-Learning and Information and
               Communications Technology (ICT) are key
               priorities for education and training policy in
               Europe.
              These new technologies can transform the
               traditional educational processes and they have
               the potential to revolutionize teaching and
               learning.
              The Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture
               (MoEC) is designing and implementing a plan for
               the integration of ICT to the Educational System.

                                                                   2
