Minister Phung Xuan Nha also requested specialized units to timely issue a regulation on the management of online teaching organizations for general education and further education institutions right in this week.
He requested specialized units to send documents to telecommunications, and information technology enterprises to request support for infrastructure and transmission lines for online teaching and learning activities. The building of the electronic lecture repository must also receive more attention.

Each level of schools needs to build a response scenario so that in each specific situation, it still ensures the dual goal: safety for students and teachers, and ensuring the plan of teaching and learning in the conditions that students cannot go to school”.
