What is the Content and Structure of Version 1 of ChinaX?


ChinaX is made up of ten “mini-courses” or “parts” that collectively span 6,000 years of history. Each mini-course consists of 4-8 “modules,” each with videos, readings, interactive engagements, and discussion forums. There are a total of 52 modules.

ChinaX will take you on virtual “Field Trips,” where you will have the opportunity to meet Chinese entrepreneurs, artists, botanists, administrators, among others, as they give you on-the-ground perspectives. You will also have access to rich resources from Harvard University’s diverse collections, including art, rare books, interactive maps, Harvard in-class footage, and Harvard Business School cases.

There are no pre-requisites for this course, only curiosity. Each mini-course may be taken individually.
