How WeChat Is Reshaping Online Education

Over the past year, I have been trying to help providers of online education courses in both China and the U.S. form partnerships with each other. Originally, I asked my Chinese clients to consider using learning management systems (LMS) such as Instructure’s Canvas or Blackboard’s CourseSites.
