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.
LMS platforms provide a virtual space in which teachers and students can interact. Teachers can set exams, facilitate discussion, review assignments, and assign grades. As most brands of LMS can also host a variety of apps, learners can use them to access digital textbooks, YouTube videos, classroom discussions, and even learning games.
