HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Education and Training has sent a document to ask departments of education and training and educational establishments to enhance online learning safety for students.
As the COVID-19 pandemic rages, localities and educational establishments have launched online learning and teaching to help students continue their studies.
However, the new learning method might also put children at risk as cyber attackers can exploit vulnerabilities in online teaching platforms to harass, bully and abuse learners and teachers.
To deal with this, the education ministry has asked education and training departments, universities, institutes, colleges to develop mechanisms for internet teaching which clearly guide the process of managing and organising an e-class, management skills for teachers and responsibilities of learners.
Teachers should be provided with solutions and reliable, reputable management software.
They are also encouraged to use copyrighted software, which is recommended for use by the Ministry of Education and Training and the Ministry of Information and Communications.
The document also noted that the educational establishments should raise awareness and skills on using the internet and social networks to ensure safety and cybersecurity as well as skills to avoid risks to teachers, students and parents in learning via the internet.
Co-ordination between the schools and families in online teaching and learning management should also be enhanced.
Parents need to increase their responsibility and support students to use the internet when learning online. — VNS
