The decentralized communication network pioneer, Beowulf, has announced a strategic partnership with one of Vietnam’s most elite universities, Ho Chi Minh City University of Science. Under this partnership, Beowulf will help strengthen the teaching capability, flexibility and enable an immense reach for academic delivery via the innovative Victoria platform for long-distance education.
Victoria by Beowulf provides a two-way interactive distance education platform via advanced real-time collaborative video conferencing, which brings remote students and teachers together as if they were physically in the same room. With this as the premise, Victoria provides flexibility that easily blends with students’ schedules by enabling students and faculty to have access to learning they need anytime— on whatever device they own.
In addition, Victoria features the comprehensive Learning Management System (LMS), which has been designed to combine an industry-leading interface with powerful mission-critical tools to help students, professors, and administrators achieve better outcomes.
With the mission of “Making education accessible and affordable to all anytime, anywhere,” Victoria by Beowulf has served a multitude of schools and educational institutions via its innovative and modern distance education services. Victoria has already been utilized by institutions such as the Vietnam National University’s School of Medicine, the country’s best higher education institution to offer distance teaching to medical students, and the National Taiwanese Normal University to teach Mandarin worldwide.
“Ho Chi Minh City University of Science is one of Vietnam’s most prestigious educational institutes, and the fact that we’re able to apply our technology to the next wave of education is very gratifying,” said Beowulf founder Dr. William H. Nguyen. “This new partnership is a testament to our ambition in making high-quality, affordable education accessible for anyone, anywhere in the world.”
Since its original establishment, Ho Chi Minh City University of Science has been serving as a pioneer in offering undegraduate and post-graduate education, research, and technology transfer in the fields of natural sciences. It has been able to effectively maintain its top place among other institutes in Vietnam by enriching student experience with up-to-date technology.
“This partnership is a perfect fit with our mission of providing unparalleled education quality,” said Prof. Thuoc Linh Tran, President of Ho Chi Minh University of Science. “With Victoria, we have been able to adopt a more proactive approach to addressing the wide gaps left by online education in student engagement and motivation. Using some of Victoria’s most cutting-edge learning technologies, education can surpass the physical boundaries of the classroom and provide students the opportunity to experience more than they would in a conventional classroom, through two-way interactive distance learning sessions.”
