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.
