Schools in Shanghai began online schooling for the spring semester of 2020 on March 2, and international students have offered to give some feedback after completing the first week.

Ghanaian student Wang Jingjing, a master of finance at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, said the online teaching methods used by her university are working for her.

Online courses provided by the university include both live and recorded videos, and teachers can interact with students and answers questions through an online platform.

According to the university, teachers have been preparing for the online education system since before March, and personnel are on standby to help solve any technical problems.

"I found learning through the recorded courses helpful," said Wang. "I'll preview them beforehand, then watch in more detail while doing homework."

Wang added that although online learning lacks the educational atmosphere of a school, it is the best alternative amid the novel coronavirus epidemic.

Portuguese student Xu Wenfei, an undergraduate in international economics and trade at the university, expressed thanks to teachers for accommodating her time different.

"My linear algebra course is scheduled for 9:00 am Beijing time, but that's 1:00 am in Portugal," said Xu. "My teachers let me take the course simultaneously with a financial class that starts at 6:00 pm – that's 10:00 am here."
