The Regional Open Learning Centre under the Organisation of Southeast Asian Ministers for Education is willing to provide professional expertise, consultancy and personnel training to the country for developing its distance education system.
Since 2003, the centre had implemented many programmes to assist the Ha Noi Open University. These programmes focused on personnel training, providing curriculums and school materials, and applying information technology in distance education. In recent years, Viet Nam has invested in developing open and distance education. The Government assigned the Ministry of Education and Training to implement a US$100 million project on distance education with the participation of the Ha Noi Open University. The university, with around 300 officials and lecturers, had so far trained around 45,000 students in different majors through distance education.
