BEIJING, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Education (MOE) has required colleges and universities nationwide to offer online teaching and learning resources following the postponement of school semesters.

According to a set of guidelines recently issued by the MOE, colleges and universities should make full use of all kinds of quality open online courses and laboratory resource platforms to organize online education activities.

Efforts should be made to make sure that online learning can be as efficient as learning in the classroom, said the guidelines.

Official data showed that as of Feb. 2, 22 online course platforms had opened more than 24,000 free courses covering 12 undergraduate disciplines and 18 majors of technical and vocational education.

The MOE in late January announced the postponement of the 2020 spring semester for schools amid the novel coronavirus outbreak, but did not specify the opening dates of colleges and universities under the ministry.

These online learning platforms are something that should have been initiated ages ago in this country. Like many others I've been given instructions, without much instruction, to prepare online lessons. I'll wait and see what happens before I take any real action.

Ditto--I pretty much echo this sentiment.

Last week I began receiving directives and a barrage of information addressing the question WHAT? and much less information addressing the question HOW? I am also taking a wait-and-see approach and am not scrambling into action just yet.
