This paper introduces the process of constructing the elearning website for Biomedical Engineering (BME), including the process of building electronic lectures and online examinations for the course. Biomedical Engineering is a new discipline in Vietnam, there were only three universities offer undergraduate degrees in 2005. In addition, this field requires a relatively extensive amount of knowledge of different areas such as informatics, electronics, biology, physics.. and it is growing

In this paper, we introduce the process of building the elearning website, including selecting appropriate elearning technology; apppy it to form some electronic lectures; online student assessment; conduct surveys and collect feedback about website and courses. This website is based mainly on open source softwares, a becoming popular trend in education . It has proved appropriate and successful in terms of educating biomedical engineering, especially in the advanced programme carried out at Department of Electronic Technology and Biomedical engineering, Hanoi University of Technology for the first time, in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.
