  • Bie Dunrong Xiamen University
  • Liu Jin Beijing Institute of Technology

Abstract

Online teaching is hardly a new feature at Chinese colleges and universities. However, during the COVID-19 epidemic, it has become the main mode of instruction and is being widely used in colleges and universities. The student participation rate and degree of interaction with teachers are very high. After the crisis, are the effects of this large-scale experiment going to disappear, or will some experiences and practices be retained and integrated into traditional classroom teaching?
