The This information on the guidelines for manipulating of online learning materials of Thai vocational education during school closures due to COVID-19 has been based on document-analysis research techniques. The results showed that during the closure of academic institutions, the learning system continued. It allows vocational schools to maintain a policy of managing learning in the similar direction. Teaching and learning at the Vocational Education Institutes of Thailand use On-Site, On-Air, Online and On-demand learning methods. The Ministry of Education has included on-hand learning methods together with online learning management with various methods including Synchronous, Asynchronous, Hybrid Learning & Blended Learning. While on-site teaching uses Project-based Learning, STEM and STEAM management. As for On-Air teaching and learning, R-radio and TV Thai-com are primarily used. On-demand, it's an informal study via YouTube, R-Channel. On-hand will deliver books for learners to learn by themselves at home. These policies and actions make it possible for vocational education institutions to continuously provide teaching in the Covid-19 situation.
