The British Embassy in Vietnam has recently introduced J2blast software in mathematics and information technology (IT) in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, to enhance skills in these subjects for students from three to 16 years of age. The software is designed and developed by the UK’s Just2easy Company under a UK-funded education project.

All Vietnamese teachers and students can use the software through an account at http://truonghocketnoi.edu.vn of the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET). Each student registers an account to access the curriculum and can follow his or her performance and progress in the subject. Teachers can use the software to also follow performance and progress and help those who are having difficulties. The software is free for teachers and students for five years. Teachers are also trained to use J2blast software by experienced English teachers and software developers from Just2easy.

The original version only provided elementary math but the ministry asked the company to provide a separate development for Vietnam’s secondary level under international standards.

According to Mr. Nguyen Xuan Thanh, Deputy Director of MoET’s Secondary Education Department, the J2blast software will help Vietnamese teachers and students have the opportunity to access an advanced educational product. “There is a lot of educational software in Vietnam but they are mainly fixed lectures with a low level of interactivity,” he said at the launch. “This software will give teachers and students a new way of learning.”

Mr. Alastair Cameron, Business Development Director at Just2Easy, said he was glad to be able to bring Vietnamese students an exciting and unique learning software that helps them with practical skills in math and IT.
