Aiming at helping students learn more effectively and reduce learning pressure by providing an online learning system for tens of millions of Vietnamese students, VioEdu – an smart Edtech platform applying the 4.0 technology has been researched and developed by a team of experienced experts of FPT Technology Department.

From ViOlympic …

ViOlympic is an educational product with 10 years of establishment and development. This is a product developed by FPT and has achieved remarkable success. ViOlympic is a combination of modern method of education and technology towards a dynamic young generation. Currently, there are about 30 million students registering for services and 30% of students often test on ViOlympic in 63/63 provinces/cities.

In 10 years of development, ViOlympic has undergone many upgrades to better serve students’ learning needs; however, the old system built on ASP.NET webforms has revealed points that are no longer appropriate to the new technology trends as well as new development plans. Therefore, FPT Technology Department established a new team of the system research and development with the aim of making ViOlympic become the most advanced educational product of the Group, applying 4.0 technologies to support teaching and learning.

To VioEdu – a smart Edtech platform

VioEdu is researched and developed by FPT Group’s Technology Department based on its experience with ViOlympic, supporting teaching and learning for all 3 subjects: students, parents and teachers.

VioEdu is an Edtech platform available to students from elementary to high school, allocated according to the curriculum of Vietnamese textbooks. The system of online exercises and tests applies the latest technologies such as modeling knowledge into graphs, big data analysis, artificial intelligence to personalize the learning, as well as help each student have a suitable learning process, improve weaknesses and promote strengths in the best way.

VioEdu platform supports teaching and learning for all 3 subjects: students, parents and teachers.

Supporting students in learning

Vioedu uses different ways to give students an experience unlike the traditional way of learning. One of the first ways is “Modeling knowledge”. For example, when a student makes a miscalculation, the system will indicate what is wrong, and how to do it instead of the fact that the student will have to redo from the beginning.

Next is the tool called Learning Motivation. The system will provide examples which are close to students’ real life or evidence that may provide other interesting knowledge such as geographic and historical knowledge. From that, it helps to inspire students’ joy and curiosity while not only learning but also knowing more interesting social knowledge.

Finally, VioEdu can personalize students. This is one of the most unique reviews of the system. Based on the learning process, the system will show each student’s strengths and weaknesses and how to overcome them. VioEdu uses artificial intelligence and technology to produce detailed “maps” of each student’s knowledge. Based on the chart, students only need to study what they are weak at marked in red (for example) and therefore, it will reduce the time compared to the traditional way of learning when it takes a lot of time to find out what knowledge is lacking.

Based on the learning process, the system will show each student’s strengths and weaknesses and how to overcome them.

Supporting teachers in teaching activities

VioEdu program adheres to the learning schedule by week of the Ministry of Education and Training, with full of textbooks of grades and knowledge arranged from basic to advanced, appropriate to the level of each student.

In addition, the new system updates the security, storage and inspection features for all questions and answers on the server, helping to maximizingly avoid frauds, ensure fairness and transparency in the test as well as the need to review and answer questions when students request.

The superiority of the system is that: for a class of about 50-60 students, the review on paper for each student will take a lot of time and is almost ineffective, but with the Vioedu system, then teachers and parents just need to see the chart to understand the need to focus on developing which part for students.

The system offers a perspective on students’ progress on each skill. Teachers and parents can rely on this to have an overview of their children’s knowledge.

In terms of administration, the entire questions are reconfigured according to the set theme of questions, which helps to take advantage of the questions each year and among different types of exams. The creation and display of questions is also fully manipulated on the web without going through the application on the computer. This is a platform to socialize the submission and entry of questions for ViOlympic, and collaborators can enter questions from anywhere to create a richer set of questions for students.

Supporting parents in following their children’s learning progress

The smart education platform, VioEdu, will provide basic statistics about the time of learning, the number of practice questions, and the history of students’ lessons; helping parents manage their children’s self-study time. Besides, students can review the questions answered.

The system also has a progress assessment of learners. This section offers a perspective on students’ progress on each skill. Teachers, parents and students can rely on this to have an overview of their children’s knowledge.

The system provides basic statistics about the time of learning, the number of practice questions, and the history of students’ lessons.

To do this, the system uses knowledge “points”. These points are connected and closely related. When the student gives the wrong answer, these points will be displayed to indicate what is wrong and why. Through the tests, the system can identify which parts students are weak or good at, based on the exam history, so that parents and teachers can know exactly that their children need to improve which parts of knowledge that is missing.

It can be seen that VioEdu is a revolutionary product in supporting students’ learning, providing an online learning system suitable for tens of millions of Vietnamese students, and making an important contribution to building and renovating the education of our country.
