Vietnam - Hoc Tren Truyen Hinh (Distance learning through TV Broadcasting) (English)

Second and more importantly, MOET began to broadcast school lessons on 1 national and 27 provincial TV channels all over the country. Local education agencies were in charge of developing and producing TV lessons subject to local conditions. They crowdsourced ideas from teachers specialized in specific domains in order to develop educational TV programs at the provincial level. In the 27 (out of 65) provinces where TV lessons aired, as a minimum, students in ninth and twelfth grades were able to watch three 30-minute maths and Vietnamese literature lessons per week. The lessons strictly followed the simplified curriculum framework communicated by MOET. Teachers and schools were involved in assessing lessons to ensure their quality before they aired. In areas where planning and filming lessons at the provincial level was not possible, the province’s TV station would tune in to a nearby channel or the national channel in order to broadcast lessons produced in other areas of the country. Given the limited time and resources available and a high proportion of students from less advantaged groups who did not have the resources to access online learning platforms, MOET’s online and TV learning strategy was implemented quickly, with the first lesson being broadcast after only two weeks of school closures. In some provinces, 80 percent of students were able to access online or watch educational TV lessons during the period of social distancing. Because the lessons adhered to the simplified framework curriculum, the school year remained on track to finish in July, as scheduled, and the national high school examination could take place in August, again as scheduled.
