Laos: Students Make Use of ‘Open Data’

With eight percent of the population logging in online, Lao PDR ranks seventh in Southeast Asia in internet usage. Tech savvy neighbors may have more citizens but Laos has seen the most rapid increase over the past few years, with the number of internet users having doubled since 2008. IT infrastructure is expanding to rural areas and more and more young Laotians are turning to social media and smartphones.

The article promotes the activities of the World Bank providing 'Open Data' to university students to improve learning outcomes.
