HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Within 24 hours of Vietnam's Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) announcing a nationwide school shutdown in February, YOLA was able to register and prepare over 3,000 of its current students to be online ready with minimal disruption to student learning. That has now grown to nearly 10,000 students being online ready and studying so far.

Ensure students to study without interruption
