Will a surge in distance learning for traditional subjects, test prep, language, and trade skills leave the poorest out?
China knows a thing or two about distance learning. For two decades, the country’s education ministry has used the television airwaves to broadcast agricultural lessons to more than 100 million rural students—making it the largest such program in the world. And in the early 2000s, the charitable Li Ka Shing Foundation installed satellite dishes and computers to broadcast lectures to 10,000 rural schools. Now this top-down model of online learning is being joined by a surge in new commercial and university offerings.
And it’s no longer just about reaching rural provinces. In China a rapidly rising middle class—part of a population that now totals 1.4 billion—is creating a demand for education far outpacing what traditional teachers and schools can supply. In response, Chinese startups are identifying market niches and developing entirely new products, while universities are emulating online platforms first developed in the United States.
The trend is strikingly on display in Beijing’s technology district, Zhongguancun, often called China’s Silicon Valley, where a building housing 15 education-technology startups has become known as the MOOC Times Building. (The acronym formally means “massive open online course,” but in China “MOOC” is used to describe any kind of online educational offering.) The startup community around Zhongguancun includes Hujiang, which has 80 million registered users, including three million who pay fees. Many are cramming for tests like the “gaokao,” China’s main college entrance exam. A startup called Jikexueyuan created a platform offering tutorials on programming and Web design that has signed up more than 800,000 users. And the newest entrants are more diverse platforms such as the parental-advice site Babytree. (Just enter Mom’s due date and “you can get for you and your baby a tailored parenting guide,” the site says, in Chinese.)
Chinese investment in education technologies has climbed from $137 million (in U.S. dollars) in 2013 to more than $1 billion in 2014, according to TAL Education Group, a publicly traded Chinese education firm based in Beijing.
And the startups in Zhongguancun are joined by a wide range of university and private entrants. Xuetang, a MOOC supported by Tsinghua University, for example, offers some courses on edX, an online platform sponsored by MIT and Harvard University.
There are some concerns accompanying this trend. Although China has by far the world’s largest number of Internet users, with more than 640 million people online, Internet penetration is only about 46 percent, compared with 87 percent in the United States. And a number of studies suggest that the benefits of online education accrue mostly to the already advantaged. Justin Reich, executive director of the PK12 Initiative at MIT and a research scientist in MIT’s Office of Digital Learning, who recently spent time touring startups at the MOOC Times Building and talking to educators in China, says he also heard concerns about students becoming isolated and losing out on useful peer pressure, but that he generally encountered great enthusiasm.
“In China, all of these concerns are voiced against the backdrop of a much larger concern that there is a tremendous unmet demand for education,” he says.
Online courses can in some cases not only fill a brick-and-mortar void but actually do a better job at teaching certain specific skills, says Rong Wang, a professor at Peking University who researches education finance. Traditional schools are very exam-oriented, “and many teachers don’t have adequate capacities in delivering practical skills instruction to students,” she says. And working adults aren’t being served by traditional schools, which generally have only limited classes on evenings and weekends, she says.
Reich adds that there has been some discussion within the government of defining a set of requirements for degrees and then letting students meet some of them through MOOCs. If the government were to allow MOOC credits to apply toward a degree, he points out, such a scheme could rapidly be implemented nationwide.

sustainability's question - will my generation be first to value litle sisters more than big brothers

the 3 communications revolutions grandfather observed in 1972 turned The Economist into the (sustainability) world's favorite viewspaper 1 2

3 programmable computer chip -why dividend from quality systems revolution innovated by japan but now 1972 doubling in capacity every 2 years
and therefore making it likely world would have spent 4000 times more of being everywhere interconnected by 2030 vs 1946

2 the telecoms satellite - why :death of cost of distance to communicate

1 students at centre of online learning networks of computer -eg The Learning Web - Home Page is an alumni group begun in nz in 1984 by grdn Dryden and whse stiry reache 10 million Chinese families by late 1990s

from 1972 -father then interviewed anyone he could from The Economist on hypothesis 10 times more impact of this combination of innovations within 50 years than from the industrial revolutions 150 years

the main system exponential scenario (little sistered sustainability or big brothered loss) -what if this is applied to life shaping challenges (end poverty) as a priority and what if it isn't

by 1972 father also had a controversial world view- America under nixon was becoming neurotic, unhappy and not the world best partner in the way it had been in the first half of the 20th century; two particular actins bothered him dumbing down of peoples by commercial ttv and the change of public money spent on arms-- altogether intellectaulaised around totally false (ie systems that devalued intergenerational goodwill  and borderless open society at compound-so-ultimately-irreversible (too big to exist ) rates)  macroeconomic models

conversely win-wins that  japan then south krea and superports run by Chinese traders had started father saw china (by 1975 Chinese diaspora being 3rd riches identity) continuing- it clarified where the sustainability communicatins revolution would be played out  (far away from UN's piece of manhattan)

given that half of the world would live within 3000 miles of Beijing by 2015 it  sustainability last tipping points would involve common senses around that space's joyful  mediation of youth  trust  open society and education

with unassuming heroines young Chinese women action learning networks and supporters apps 

mainly unintended villains : old American billionnaires as sponsrs of vgested interests and Americas priviliege to try every web/app experiment before other spaces

father and my 1984 book the 2025 report provided key exponentially spiraling timelines of peace, clean energy, downsizing top-dwn government, ending macroeconomics, celebrating open (jobs) learning netwrks and collaboration apps connected to youths microfranchise entrepreneur competitions all anchored arunhd the assumption that by 2000 man wuld recognise his greatest risk was discrepancy in incmes and expecatins of rich and poor nations- each of the biggest professions makes money externalizing the risk it rules over- this is the ultimate system horror einstein used to diarise

so whats left of our species innovation brilliance in progressing human lot
our human race depends on this decade being under 30s most sustainably productive- they need open space everywhere
the supercity model can work - if we exchange 2 things honestly- where is each of the 20 biggest markets most sustainable "higher" purpose already to be learnt from - how does a worst for youth city like Washington dc reframe that as the greatest ever opportunity to improve through linking in youth open learning spaces and friendship networks such as 20th celebration of world creative children

the worldwide youth community led by franciscans and amy-style Chinese youth connecting mandela, king, Gandhi, Jewish Cantors or other cultural leaders of intergenerational value is worth (youth) celebrating collaboration with more than whom ever is your favorite sporting superstar

what else....

skype format is best as in mixing live and non-synced
if possible anyone on TO list, please confirm your skypes - many of the craziest concepts to connect youths brilliant decade need iteration (or amy and chinese female millennials moderation -the millennial delicacy of social mediation where it was previously banned needs every open and transparency skill ever rehearsed since 1975 prediction of The Economist of china as millennials lead collaboration nation of sustainability goals and then some ) 

apart from open space itself, we are missing the biggest creative conference trick of all that i have been free to observe

before your main break, 10 march lunch - empower 15 by one minute pitches - where pitcher either knows her pitch  will stream directly into  a poster show during lunch or be a breakout in the afternoon

a pitch of la maestra - who in san diego  the only sustained epicentre of microcredit in usa - how baltimore is learning to replicate it; invitation for brooklyn to join the party

a pitch of why conscious capitalism would benefit from an inter-university student chapter - how eg this could help roll out of next social action movies of kiehl's soundtrack studio including one on mackey's favorite subject nutrition
