This research aims to develop the models of Virtual Learning Resource Center (VLRC) for the digital manpower. The results of the research are that: 1) The VLRC development process consists of 5 steps: requirements analysis, planning and designing, prototyping and testing, implementing and monitoring, and evaluation and reporting. 2) The VLRC for the digital manpower consists of two models: 2.1) the physical learning resource, which is a physical space that the learner can actually touch. It can be divided into 5 categories: location-based learning resources, human-based learning resources, material-based learning resources, equipment-based learning resources, and event-based learning resources; and 2.2) the digital learning resource, which is a virtual space that learners can access through information and communication technology tools. It can be divided into 5 categories: search engine and translator’s tools, management and storage tools, distance learning tools, content creation, presentation and dissemination tools, social networking and online learning communities’ tools. 3) The goals of VLRC development are learning to know, learning to do, learning to live together, and learning to be.
