OER Portal to Enhance Higher Education in Vietnam

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha has authorised Decision No. 1117/QD-TTg, approving a programme to develop open educational resources for higher education. The project will span from 2023 to 2026 and will establish and operationalise a portal for open educational resources. The platform will offer educational materials for learners, educators, and researchers in higher education institutions, as well as individuals seeking to enhance their higher education knowledge.

By 2026, the government wants more than 40% of the country’s higher education institutions to actively contribute to the construction and enhancement of open educational resources. Over 20% of higher education majors will have textbooks, teaching, and learning materials on the portal. Furthermore, over 300 pieces of additional learning material in higher education will be posted to the portal.

The programme aims to ensure that a minimum of 50% of higher education institutions can access and make use of these resources. Additionally, the programme wants over 50% of higher education officials and educators to use these resources for their teaching and research activities.

The completion of a comprehensive system of legal documents that govern the development, use, and accessibility of open educational resources will also be carried out under the programme. Educational institutions are encouraged to create databases and establish connections between these databases and the national portal for open educational resources.

In March 2022, Vietnam took over the chairmanship of ASEAN Education Cooperation for 2022-2023 from the Philippines. At the 6th East Asia Summit Education Ministers Meeting last year, the Vietnamese government identified five key priorities for its term. These included protecting and nurturing learners’ mental well-being and strengthening education regarding environmental protection and climate change. Furthermore, it will guarantee equitable and high-quality educational access for all learners, particularly those in marginalised communities, accelerate comprehensive digital transformation while ensuring cyber safety, and foster innovation in higher education to align with developmental needs.

The event underlined the significance of identifying the need for digital transformation in education systems to ensure individuals are equipped with the necessary skills, competencies, and values to tackle challenges in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the evolving landscape of the workforce.

More recently, the country’s southern economic hub, Ho Chi Minh City, recognised digital transformation as a crucial part of elevating the quality of education in the city. According to Ho Chi Minh City Vice Chairman, Duong Anh Duc, the city is a major metropolis, and its education system has over 2 million students and approximately 100,000 teachers, lecturers, experts, and scientists. In recent years, the city has been proactive in leveraging information technology to improve the learning environment for its students.

Duc said the city’s accomplishments demonstrate that the use of IT in education is important and fully meets the demands of fundamental and comprehensive educational reform. The municipal education sector identified digital transformation as a top solution for improving the quality of its education and training systems. An event was held for experts and management officials to explore the prospects and hurdles associated with digital transformation to formulate a specific action plan to promote digital transformation in education in a more efficient and meaningful way.
