BEIJING, April 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- According to xuetangX, the leading Chinese MOOC company, in only two years their LMS platform reached one and half millions users, most of them universities students. In 2014 xuetangX launched "xuetangX Cloud", at Tsinghua University campus, a learning management system (LMS) that combines online digital media with traditional classroom methods. The platform has such a good acceptance that in this moment more than 200 Chinese Universities are using it.
The platform is very easy to use. The teachers upload courses in the MOOC format (including videos, assessments, teaching materials, etc). Students can watch videos and do assignments anywhere, at any time and when they come back to classroom, the teacher normally explains some difficult key points using most of the time for practice and discussion.
Students normally don't need any special training for enrolling or following up the online lessons. The platform uses MOOC's courses from Chinese and International universities. Some campuses produce and upload their own courses.
Li Jiahao is a young Chinese student, who is earning his Ph.D. degree at Tsinghua University and he has been using xuentangX Cloud said "It was a great experience studying on this platform. Before if there was some topic that I didn't understand at the conference, I could only discuss it with classmates or the teacher after class but afterward we started to use the MOOCs we spend more time for group discussion and analysis. For those courses containing too much content, some students even had to use the recorder to help them a review. But now, thanks to LMS, all the videos are accessible without any difficulty. I can study the course before the class starts and pay more attention to the more difficult parts. It really improved my learning efficiency and help me study better"
Mr. Zhang Bo, xuetangX Vice President estimated that by the end of this year more than 400 Chinese high learning institutions will implement xuetangX Cloud including international Universities (the platform is also available in English). The company is working on a new version that will add more functions for schools instructors and to big data analysis.
