Several universities in Shanghai have announced that they will launch online education programs in order to keep students on track for graduation.

Due to the spread of novel coronavirus pneumonia, schools in Shanghai will not begin the spring semester until the end of February, and students are strictly prohibited from returning to school early without the school’s approval.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University has urged its faculty to be prepared to teach online and has introduced a number of online courses for students.

NYU Shanghai, China’s first Sino-US research university, launched a digital teaching and learning program on Feb 17, allowing 820 undergraduate students and 130 graduate students to study online from as far away as Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States.

University officials said that with the help of the university's information technology department, comprehensive digital tools will be available for teachers to interact with students and receive feedback in real time.

China's Ministry of Education has ordered colleges and universities to make online learning just as efficient as classroom learning.
