EXPERTS CALL TO SPEED UP CHINA’S DISTANCE EDUCATION
China should push to advance distance education, which still lags far behind developed countries, experts said at the opening ceremony of the China International Distance Education Conference 2010. China should improve the quality of distance education courses by making multi-media methods more accessible and diversified, and push forward resource sharing among domestic and international distance education institutes.
Statistics from the MOE indicate that by 2007 China’s distance education network covered 90 percent of the junior middle schools and 80 percent of the primary schools in China’s rural areas.
