A new generation electronic textbook named Classbook was released in Hanoi on April 18.

The device contains the full content, which can be updated free of charge, of more than 300 textbooks from grade 1 to 12, plus a number of reference books in accordance with the curriculum standards of the Ministry of Education and Training.

The product is also loaded up with a number of applications helping users at different grades interact with the content of many subjects.

Notably, it is integrated with the Vietnamese version of the “Shaping the way we teach English” programme of the US’s Oregon State University for educators, a teacher training programme, and English lessons compiled by the University of Languages and Foreign Studies under the Vietnam National University in Hanoi.

It is hoped to provide Vietnamese students with a modern way of study in the digitalisation era.

The launching ceremony was held by the Vietnam Education Publishing House, Intel Corporation, the US Embassy and the University of Languages and Foreign Studies.-VNA
