University in online lecture link-up

FUDAN University has teamed up with Harvard University and the University of Tokyo to launch open online lecture classes.

This is seen as another step forward by local universities developing web resources.

The Sandel Classroom will be held six to eight times a year, focusing on a wide range of topics, including how people should survive disasters.

Michael Sandel, an American political philosopher and a professor at Harvard University, delivered a lecture to students from the three universities for the first time over the weekend.

"It's great to attend the class and talk with students across the globe," said Kuang Shenda, a student at Fudan's School of International Relations and Public Affairs.

Previously, Fudan launched lectures on NetEase Open Course. Other universities have open courses on iTunes U and other public platforms.
