Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City will offer distance learning for the nation’s medical students. Underpinned by a decentralised cloud network, the university is offering medical training to people in rural and poorer areas
Supported by a decentralised cloud network from Silicon Valley-based Beowulf Blockchain, the new learning platform will eventually offer medical students across Vietnam remote learning in their home or place of work.
In a developing country, distance learning can provide training opportunities to people who may not be able to travel and live in a city hundreds of miles away.
It will also help spread expertise concentrated in big cities like Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to rural and poorer areas.
