China: Maintaining Undisrupted Learning during COVID-19



The Smart Learning Institute of Beijing Normal University, in partnership with UNESCO and The International Research and Training Centre for Rural Education has launched the “Disrupted classes, Undisrupted Learning” initiative, providing flexible online learning to over 270 million students from their homes.

The handbook published in March 2020 is based on practical experience, and collaborations between several sectors (governmental, telecommunication, enterprise, etc.) to provide effective and inclusive education in case of emergencies, such as the COVID-19.

The handbook aims to help educators, researchers and practitioners implement similar case studies in their context. It describes several flexible online learning strategies that have been implemented during the COVID-19 outbreak. The strategies are based on six dimensions, namely (a) infrastructure, (b) learning tools, (c) learning resources, (d) teaching and learning methods, (e) services for teachers and students, and (f) cooperation between government, enterprises, and schools.
