TVU – On June 9th, 2023, RMIT University collaborates with Tra Vinh University to organize a sharing session on open-source exploitation.

Representatives from the RMIT University Library in Vietnam, including Ms. Trịnh Thu Hà – Deputy Director of the Library, Mr. Đỗ Văn Châu, and Ms. Huỳnh Tôn Nữ Minh Nguyệt – Library staff, shared their academic open initiatives that support teaching and research.

During the event, participants exchange knowledge about Open Education Resources (OER) and discuss how to identify free and legal materials, search for supporting images for teaching purposes through websites like Flickr and Pixabay, and access free OER sources in Vietnam such as the Open Educational Resources of Fullbright University, Open Educational Resources of Vietnam, and the Vietnamese Journal of Science introducing research support services at RMIT Vietnam. They also explore journal search tools, websites that support teaching activities (e.g., ORCID ID, ResearcherID), and some open-access thesis repositories.

RMIT Vietnam Library selects various open educational resources published by reputable universities, educational institutions worldwide, and organizes them into online portals, allowing quick, easy, and convenient access for lecturers and students. The aim is to spread this initiative to many universities in Vietnam.
