Chinese students’ eagerness for higher quality education is well documented but, in recent years, many are turning to the Internet for their learning needs. In 2013, Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web, which gained access to the Chinese market, and online learning suddenly took off. According to the China Industrial Information Network, over 100 million people took online classes last year – more than doubling that of 2010. The number of people taking online classes is expected to continue to grow at an annual average of 15 percent.
