DTU’s E-Learning Course Opens in Ho Chi Minh City

On April 7th, an opening ceremony of DTU’s new E-Learning Course was held in Ho Chi Minh City. Dr. Le Nguyen Bao, DTU Vice Rector and Mr. Vinh Thang, The Gioi Moi Magazine Chief Editor and fifty students attended.

In 2008, MOET authorized DTU to introduce a distance learning course in Danang which has gained about two thousand students from Danang to Ca Mau. However, an improved version was officially announced at the end of 2011, offering many new useful features.
Dr. Le Nguyen Bao addresses the meeting

The new online study method, enabling students to study at home, is more innovative than previous ones. Materials can be printed, recorded or made into video clips, making the learning process more efficient, flexible and interesting. In addition, virtual space is provided so that lecturers and students can communicate directly with each other. Questions can be directed to lecturers via email and replied to within 24 hours. Other activities like practice, discussions, group exercises and so on can be conducted using 3D Second Life. Students will have the impression of being connected to real people during their lessons.

Another advantage of E-learning is the flexible scheduling of the online lesson. Students can work at their own pace to work their way to graduation. It takes four years to get a bachelor’s degree and just three years for a vocational certificate. University or college students will spend between two and two and a half years on E-learning courses. Furthermore, a credit-based system is big advantage for those who want to shorten or extend their study time, according to their abilities. Students are also able to register for as many courses as they want.

“The biggest advantage of E-Learning course is that you don’t need to spend time attending classes. You just go to DTU on the first day to receive the materials and on the last day to take the exams. Other than that, everything is internet-based and you must use your own initiative”, said Dr. Le Nguyen Bao.

Mr. Le Van Chung, the DTU E-University Center Manager covered course regulations and presented students with materials for use in the first semester.

 DTU E-Learning courses are offered in Business Administration, Accounting, Finance and Banking, Information Technology and in English. For more information, please go to http://e-university.edu.vn
