Mr. Minh Do, VOER Program Director, represented the Vietnam Foundation at the Expert Group Meeting and provided a brief overview of what the Vietnam Foundation has done in the development of OER in Vietnam.
We would like to offer our sincere gratitude to all of you, who have been contributing their knowledge on VOER and motivate others to participate in this meaningful educational movement. Without your great supports, the website would never have received an impressive number of materials in a short period of time like this. We strongly believe that the website can reach 20.000 modules by the end of this year.
The Talking Books for the Blind Foundation celebrated its tenth year anniversary of scholarships for excellent blind students on December 26, 2009. The Vietnam Foundation has been a long-time supporter of this organization, which provides scholarships to blind students with excellent school performances.
After an extensive set-up period, the website Sachnoionline.com (Online Audio Books) for the blind was launched on August 8, 2009. VNF has been engaged in this project from the very beginning. To date, Sachnoionline.com, which hosts more than 200 audio books, has been a success, gaining vast support from many organizations and individuals.
VNF invited a delegation from the University of California, Irvine (UCI) to Vietnam from March 1 to 6, 2009 to examine how English is taught and learned in Vietnam in order to meet the high demand for English education in the American universities by Vietnamese students.
