SEATTLE, March 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- China's leading online education company, Hujiang EdTech, is attending the 2017 TESOL Convention in Seattle, USA from March 21 to 24, as the convention's most significant strategic sponsor. The Chinese education technology giant will showcase its efforts in revolutionizing the online education industry, and seek new talent and cooperation from around the world.
Hosted by the world's largest organization of English educators, TESOL, the TESOL Convention is the largest and the most important event in the industry. This year, the event will attract more than 6,000 professionals from around the world, including renowned publishing and educational institutions like Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, National Geographic Learning and the British Council, as well as major academic organizations and trade associations from the United States and elsewhere in the world.
This is the first time for Hujiang EdTech to attend the TESOL Convention, apart from that it has joined many other major international ELT Conferences and conventions before, and has made a positive impact on them. In 2016, Hujiang Edtech was the only EdTech brand sponsor from China at the IATEFL (International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) in the UK.
This year, as the strategic partner, Hujiang leads the sponsorship with a mission to bridge TESOL's high level resources to its various products that serves its users. As Hujiang's key business unit, HJCLASS attracts thousands of online ESL teachers for its own developed English courses and syllabus on a fixed or flexible schedule.
Meanwhile CCtalk, as an interactive online teaching platform for "iTeachers" under Hujiang EdTech, is playing a significant role of matching end to end users. On CCtalk, teachers can live-stream their lectures for students to watch, and use a range of innovative digital tools that facilitate the interaction between teachers and students. Seen as the Airbnb or Uber of the education industry, CCtalk offers a platform where independent teachers can pursue their entrepreneurial dreams of online teaching.
Aiming to integrate technology and education, Hujiang offers original online educational resources for its users in a variety of forms. It hopes to lead the education industry with the idea of "iTeachers" – the "I" stands for "independent" and "Internet". Hujiang now serves over 140 million users in China, the largest market for EdTech in the world.
Hujiang EdTech founder, chairman and CEO, Arnold (Cairui) Fu, says, "Hujiang makes education easier, fairer, and more enjoyable through the Internet." With China's youth crazy for live streaming, Jian Lu, partner of Hujiang EdTech and the President of CCtalk, believes that the technology should be used to aid and transform traditional education methods.
"The TESOL Convention will let the world's prominent educators know more about Hujiang and recruit talent for CCtalk and other projects. The convention can also help the company expand its business to a larger market," said a senior executive from Hujiang EdTech. "We hope that this win-win scenario will result in Hujiang serving more people and offering more inspiring alternatives for online education."
