Abstract

Online teaching has become increasingly significant amidst the sweeping tide of pedagogical reform and innovation. The constrains brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic have expedited the computerization and platformization of teaching and learning, sparking many transformative practices in higher education. Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), the largest international university in China, has embraced this shift by implementing online education platforms. The Chinese Culture Teaching Centre (CCTC) at XJTLU has developed distinct online platforms, such as U-talk for year one students, to augment their learning experience. This chapter assesses the effectiveness of these online teaching methods for year one humanistic public courses at CCTC. It identifies key challenges, such as artificial intelligence (AI) in assignment writing, and discusses their impact on faculty and students. Recommendations to enhance these methods are proposed, with an emphasis on improving students' learning outcomes and faculty's teaching quality.
