    Improving IT Education In Vietnam Improving IT Education In Vietnam Presentation Transcript

    • Improving IT Education in VN Discussion & some Suggestions Huy Zing @ MultiUni Huy Le @ RMIT Vietnam June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • What’s the state of IT skills in VN?
      • Vietnam will lack 1,900 IT experts by end of 2009
      • Almost half of IT graduates require additional training
      • Little educational and community support for innovative technologies
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • How are we learning?
      • Universities
      • Training centers
      • Self-study
      • On the job (lucky you)
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • What cool techs are not being taught?
      • Please give me some examples
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • Examples of cool techs not being taught
      • Rails
      • Facebook Application Platform
      • OpenSocial
      • iPhone SDK
      • Android
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • Shouldn’t universities be teaching these?
      • Some might say “self-study”…
      • But Stanford University is teaching them
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • Why not? Curriculum
      • Example: RMIT Vietnam curriculum comes from RMIT Australia
      • Example: FPT Aptech curriculum comes from Aptech in India
      • The country’s IT future is decided elsewhere.
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • Why not? Marketable skills
      • Less immediate market demand
      • Mainstream skills limit innovation
        • Heavy focus on outsourcing in VN
      • Mainstream skills neglect growing job and consulting opportunities
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • Alternatives for IT Education?
      • Please share your ideas
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • Alternative: corporate training
      • Example: RMIT Vietnam wants to do corporate training in IT
      • Benefit: on-demand
      • Limitation: short 1-2 seminars
      • What courses do companies want centers?
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • Alternative: MultiUni
      • “ Turn the community into a university”
      • Wikipedia => user-generated encyclopedia BarCamp => user-generated conference MultiUni => user-generated university
      • Community teaches latest technologies/skills in classroom environment
      • Cost: free or close to free
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • MultiUni - what to teach
      • Newest technologies and skills not taught elsewhere
      • Free course material from top universities: Stanford, Berkeley, MIT, Oxford, Harvard
      • First course: iPhone application development
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • MultiUni – who teaches
      • Initially, experts and teachers
      • Then, any graduate of the program can teach and pass on the knowledge
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • MultiUni – who learns
      • The more the better
      • But to accommodate limited space/resources, need admissions criteria & process
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • MultiUni – how to teach
      • Same format and length as university
      • Around 10 weeks, twice a week
        • After work hours
      • Assignments and projects, graded
      • High-tech classroom environment: Wi-Fi, projector, whiteboard
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • MultiUni – what resources are needed
      • Donations
        • Time
        • Place
        • Equipment
        • Marketing
      • Already in place for first course
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • MultiUni – how to scale
      • Set up for viral growth, like Facebook
      • Select students for
        • Skill
        • Capacity/interest to teach
      • Raise monetary or material donations
      June 9, 2009 Huy Zing / BarCamp Hanoi 2009
    • MultiUni – potential partnerships
      • FPT Aptech – market to their students
      • IDG Ventures Vietnam – review demos of projects
      • Any other ideas?
