The RTU is the oldest and currently the second largest higher education institution in Latvia. The Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology is its largest faculty, while the Institute of Applied Computer Systems (IACS) is the largest department of the Faculty with computer-assisted learning being one of its main scientific areas since 1968. The IACS conducts the “Computer Systems” programme both for academic and vocational branches starting with the college level.

In the period between 2003 and 2008, the IACS carried out a series of projects related to the implementation of eLearning for different target groups, such as secondary school pupils, rural teachers of Informatics, young people with special needs, non-IT professionals such as provincial government personnel as well as all FCSIT students. The relations with the schools are maintained through the network of teachers in informatics covering the entire Latvian territory which provides us with the ability to arrange country-wide activities.
