The Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) has signed an agreement to fund phase II of the Vietnam Blended Learning Programme, managed by the World Bank through its Vietnam Development Information Centre (VDIC).

The 900,000 AUD grant over five years (2011-2015) is a continuation of a 674,000 AUD trust fund that AusAID contributed to VDIC for the period of 2004-2010.

The Vietnam Blended Learning Programme aims to support Vietnamese institutions’ projects through the use of innovative learning methodology in their education and training programmes, such as applying information and communications technologies.

The programme is inviting organisations to send letters for funding provision./.
