HCM CITY — The Việt Nam-based innovative blockchain platform Beowulf recently announced its partnership with the National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU), a top-tier higher education institution in Taiwan.
The partnership focuses on easing barriers to learning and teaching Mandarin for anyone around the world, and will provide an international standardised certificate in Mandarin language proficiency to non-native Mandarin language speakers, an approach similar to Cambridge’s IELTS Certificate.
Under the agreement, Beowulf will provide its new distance learning platform Victoria for the Mandarin language education programme that NTNU will develop. NTNU will subsequently provide the teaching materials, teaching resources and instructional methods, from which the lesson plans will be based.
This will enable both companies to utilise the best of their abilities to offer this unique learning model.
“Ultimately, it’s about making language education accessible and affordable to more students, and in the process, helping raise the profile of one of Taiwan’s most accredited institutions. Beowulf’s blockchain-based solution helps connects Mandarin teachers and students who want to learn Mandarin anytime, anywhere,” said Beowulf Founder and CEO Dr William H Nguyen.
Beowulf Blockchain and NTNU will work together to recruit teachers and students, and NTNU will provide the framework for evaluation, as well as the handling of the certification.
Beowulf is a B2B platform which provides excellent communication services with infinite scalability across the globe.
NTNU is one of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan and one of the top-ranked universities in the world. It consists of 11 colleges, 56 departments, 112 graduate institutes, four research centers and a school of professional education and continuing studies. — VNS
