BEIJING, June 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- iQIYI, Inc. (NASDAQ: IQ) ("iQIYI" or the "Company"), an innovative market-leading online entertainment company in China, announced that the iQIYI Knowledge App (the "App") has collaborated with renowned motivational speaker and life coach Nick Vujicic to launch a parenting curriculum of 28 lessons taught by Vujicic himself. This partnership follows IQIYI's recent strategic partnership with LinkedIn, both of which represent the company's commitment to build an IP-based ecosystem of high-quality professional learning content.
Under the partnership, the App will launch Nick Vujicic's parenting curriculum with education company "Ikebang". Aside from helping kids learn more effectively by offering curated content on a wide array of topics, the curriculum guarantees an immersive learning experience by emphasizing practicality and application. Through these core characteristics, the curriculum aims to help children to cultivate self-growth and solve problems that may arise in familial parent-child relationships.
"I strongly value this cooperation with Nick Vujicic and hope it can allow more children in China to receive the motivation and inspiration they deserve, and provide parents with a better understanding of their kids," said Wang Xuepu, Vice President of iQIYI. "We have always been adamant about the quality of the content we offer and hope to continue collaborating with more partners to expand our ecosystem of professional learning content by bringing new and improved courses and user experiences to consumers."
"Launching the parenting curriculum with iQIYI is a very exciting event," said Nick Vujicic. "I'm looking forward to the response of Chinese users and hope to have more opportunities to broaden this into other topics and work more closely with iQIYI in the future."
iQIYI has always been committed to creating a more comprehensive system to its offerings in paid knowledge content and is constantly developing the quality of its educational content offering.
