Jiangsu launches pilot program to build smart education platform
The Jiangsu Provincial Department of Education on June 30 held a launch ceremony for its pilot program involving the construction of a national smart education platform.
Jiangsu and eight other provinces and cities, including Shanghai and Zhejiang, were named as pilot areas for building the smart education platform by the Ministry of Education in April. Jiangsu has since implemented a series of measures such as offering high-quality online courses to the platform and selecting several schools to take part in the program.
Ge Daokai, director-general of the Jiangsu Provincial Department of Education, said the province will invite more parties to participate in the pilot program, improve the services that the platform offers, and explore more application scenarios for the platform.
He added that the pilot program will enhance the education digitalization's role in supporting economic and social development.
A committee comprising 17 experts in digital education was set up during the launch ceremony.
