iCourse International has been officially co-launched yesterday by China's Higher Education Press and NetEase Youdao(NYSE: DAO), providing 193 new-uploaded free courses from Chinese universities for overseas students. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the Chinese version released in 2014 has become well-known as one of the remote learning solutions recommended by UNESCO.
