Prestigious local university courses and lectures – such as Sun Tzu’s Art of War, Chinese medicine and culture – will soon debut on iTunes U and other public platforms as part of an open course program. Inspired by the Harvard and Yale open courses, which are highly popular among locals, local universities, including Fudan University and Jiao Tong University, have started efforts to make their courses and lecture resources available to the public. Jiao Tong plans to launch the first batch of 100-plus courses on iTunes U and Open Course Ware – a free course–sharing platform initiated by MIT a decade ago – in September. Fudan, which holds 2,000-plus lectures annually, will also grant people free online access to the lectures with the permission of speakers.
