Platforms such as Dedao have mushroomed on the back of a trend of people paying for online content they deem useful or valuable.
“For people looking to hone a particular skill or quality, they long for avenues offering multi-skill courses taught by qualified teachers at reasonable prices,” Cao said. “Most important of all, they want the platform to be stable. The annual speech serves to create that ‘predictable’ image.”
Dedao started out as an obscure media account, where Luo repackaged complex historical, philosophical or economic topics into a daily 60-second voice message and weekly one-hour video lectures. Soon, they all morphed into a comprehensive knowledge-sharing portal where people pay for a torrent of classes, books and offline events.

It makes no sense we should get all our education in our 20s, says Debra Spar of Harvard University.
That’s why more and more elite colleges are adding flexible, inexpensive, lifelong MBA programs.
In the fast-paced world we’re living in, those who stop learning once their school days are over risk being left behind, say Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University experts.
As always, Community Education encourages folks to stay active and stay well. See how this little town is doing that, even in the time of Covid.
An old proverb said, Jonathan doesn’t know what Jon didn’t learn, In today’s information age, this statement can be reworded – both Jon and Jonathan participate in lifelong learning. Both of them are learning, only that the pace of acquiring knowledge and their interests are different. One is discovering the world and the other is trying to somehow comprehend the world. The world is changing at such a rate that learning and improving oneself has become a lifestyle. Only the focus of learning is somewhat different in each period of life.
How do you make lifelong learning classes safe as well as fun?
By having a ‘distanced’ dance class, according to LLI Director Larry Wilson at Hot Springs Village.
“It’s been something Villagers have requested from LLI because dancing is a great way to keep moving and have a good time. We were lucky to get Jennifer as an instructor.”
The coronavirus outbreak has forced many schools and classes to switch how they reach learners. That has impacted revenue, naturally. But there have been benefits, according to Director Craig Hall.
“It’s safe to say that coronavirus has presented the greatest challenge that we’ve faced as a program, with our self-supporting status,” Hall said. “But it hasn’t’ slowed us down in terms of creativity or resolve. I think this whole experience will make the program smarter, stronger, and more nimble.”
The summer children’s program run by LCE, Lexplorations, was fully booked when the pandemic hit Lexington, Hall said. In a few short weeks, LCE staff reimagined Lexporations for a socially-distanced world, translating everything to an online format. While there were families that requested refunds, the camp was a success, Hall said.
Many Lexplorations teachers are also teachers in Lexington schools, he added, and they had already gotten a taste of remote learning at the end of the 2019-2020 school year. A small adult education term was offered over the summer as well, which is not something LCE has done before.
