By 2026, Vietnam will build and put into operation a portal of open educational resources, providing learning, teaching, and research materials for learners, officials, lecturers of higher education institutions and those who need to update higher education knowledge.
Such is provided in Decision 1117/QD-TTg, approving a program to develop open educational resources for higher education.
The program also targets that the portal will be updated by 2030, in which over 60 percent of higher education institutions in the country will participate in building and developing open educational resources. Over 40 percent of higher education majors have textbooks, teaching, and learning materials posted on the portal. Over 600 textbooks, teaching, and learning materials in higher education will be posted to the portal.
Regarding exploitation and use of the resources, the program aims to have at least 75 percent higher education institutions access and use the resources, and over 75 percent of officials and lecturers of higher education institutions access and use the resources for their teaching and research. In addition, over 75 percent of learners studying in higher education institutions will access and use the resources for their learning and research.
The program also sets the task of completing the system of legal documents regulating the development, exploitation, and use of open educational resources. Hence, educational institutions are now called on to develop databases and connect the databases to the national portal on open educational resources.- (VLLF)
