Tsinghua begins online classes for students

Beginning 17 February, Tsinghua University will offer online courses while students’ return to campus is delayed.

This approach has been adopted to ensure the health and safety of Tsinghua students, faculty and staff, as part of a wide range of novel coronavirus prevention and controls measures.

Online courses offer students the opportunity to make good use of their time away from campus while reducing their exposure to the virus.

For spring semester 2020, Tsinghua plans to offer 4,254 course sessions in total, delivered by 2,681 faculty members to 25,091 students. Of these, 3,923 sessions are available online. 

On Monday morning, 155 sessions were delivered online, involving 31 schools and departments, which marked the beginning of the new semester. Rain Classroom, an online teaching tool, was adopted to offer 131 online sessions.

During the winter break, Tsinghua has set up three expert teams and one special work team to prepare for online teaching and learning, drawing on the latest information technology.

Meanwhile, students who are experiencing financial distress because of the epidemic will receive allowances from the university as all-out efforts are made to ensure access to online education for all students.
