NEWS RELEASE 

 

Phnom Penh: Korea International Cooperation Agency, known as KOICA, will sign an agreement with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Kingdom of Cambodia on May 27, 2011 to kick off the implementation phase of the $1 million project called the Project for Strengthening CLMV (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam) Capacity for ASEAN Cyber University for Cambodia.

The agreement will be signed at the office of Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport by the Representative of MoEYS, and Dr. Shin Euicheol, Representative of KOICA Cambodia Office.

This project was organized by Republic of Korea in response to the suggestion from ASEAN Secretariat at the ASEAN-KOREA Commemorative Summit in 2009 in Korea, with the objective to build the capacity of Cambodia’s ICT human resources through establishing an e-Learning center in the Institute of Technology of Cambodia and the transferring of Korean experience and knowledge, and to contribute to narrowing the digital technological gap.

For 3 years from 2010 to 2012, the project is planned to: 1) establish e-Learning Center which consists of the Learning Management System and e-Leaning contents at Institute of Technology of Cambodia, 2) provide equipment and material necessary for the operation of the project, 3) invite officers and individuals from Cambodia to Korea to transfer knowledge and experience in management and development of e-Leaning, and 4) dispatch Korean experts to Cambodia to conduct managerial activities and to provide technical advice on the implementation of the Project.

Be noted that strengthening CLMV capacity for ASEAN Cyber University is a crucial factor to allow the CLMV countries to acquire technology and knowledge related to e-learning system and to promote Cyber University which leads to more effective and efficient education with other countries in ASEAN. In addition, the project will be a meaningful opportunity for Korea to share its previous experiences and knowledge on developing e-learning system with the CLMV countries, while fostering a strong partnership and cooperation between Korean and the CLMV countries.
