Online training allows access to qualified teachers, advanced methodologies

Online training will give Vietnamese students access to high-quality lectures overseas, while lecturers will be able to access effective teaching and organization methods.

Minister of Education and Training Phung Xuan Nha said the Covid-19 crisis is still unpredictable and online teaching will be applied on a large scale at Vietnam’s education establishments.

The Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) has been setting necessary policies to encourage online teaching and accelerate digital transformation in the educational sector.

“Previously, we only organized in-person classes. But now, the combination of both online and in-person classes is a reasonable solution for all subjects. And online teaching only can be applied for some subjects,” Nha said.

The minister went on to say that in addition to obvious benefits, online teaching will also help teachers build up a rich school material database and keep up to date with knowledge being shared all over the globe.

In order to grow rapidly, Vietnam needs to ‘learn’ from developed countries. With online training, students can access foreign high-quality lectures, while lecturers can access advanced teaching methods.

“Currently, offline teaching remains the major teaching form at universities in Vietnam. This will create an incentive for teachers to improve themselves and help Vietnamese teachers connect with colleagues all over the world,” Nha said.

“With this way, I believe that in five or seven years, Vietnam will have a generation of lecturers of international level. And they will know how to develop lectures in the most effective way,” he said.

Having 20 years of experience in distance education, the Hanoi Open University (HOU) has organized online training for the last 10 years.

Duong Thang Long, deputy headmaster of HOU, said the school has received support from South Korean universities since 2015. The schools provided training to HOU’s lecturers, technicians and officers, helping improve the quality of online teaching.

Long supports the development of online teaching in Vietnam, but warned that in order to have an effective online training system, big investments will be required.

“If using old technologies with low costs, it will be ineffective. Modern infrastructure will require huge money,” he explained. Though initial costs will be high, the benefits will also be high.

RMIT, the Australian university which has campuses in Viet Nam, has successfully put 5,000 learning subjects online as a solution to cope with Covid-19. In Vietnam, 190 subjects have been switched online.

Prof Coloe said the combination of online and offline teaching has become the ‘new normal’ of the school. He emphasized the importance of providing flexible learning choices and easy access to students.

He said in the digitized world, e-learning will bring more learning opportunities to the future leaders of Vietnam, whenever they are.
