In a statement sent to the Daily on August 2, RMIT says it has been transforming nearly 20,000 paper textbooks into e-books from the new academic year and encourages students to make the most of online resources with more than 300,000 e-books and 120,000 research papers that they can easily access.
In addition, the university has launched the COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) project, giving a chance to 27 RMIT students majoring in marketing to work on a four-week project via Skype and social media with a group of their peers at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science, Holland.

The university last month put into operation Learning Lab Vietnam, an online learning website aimed to support not only RMIT students but also those from different universities across the country to enhance their academic success.
After one year of operation, the Centre of Digital Excellence (CODE) designed to share RMIT Vietnam’s expertise in digital learning and teaching with Vietnam’s education community has reaped significant benefits.
The center has organized numerous speeches delivered by international experts in online teaching and workshops on the application of digital technology into classes for 240 high-school teachers and those active in the education sector in HCMC and Lam Dong Province.
Launched in May last year on RMIT Vietnam’s campus in HCMC’s District 7, the center is a collaborative venture between RMIT, Vietnam’s government and higher education institutions./.
