Cloud platform donated to digitalize Tibet's basic education

A cloud platform designed to digitalize education was donated to 200 primary, secondary schools and kindergartens in Tibet Autonomous Region on Tuesday.

The platform, worth 60 million yuan (9.28 million U.S. dollars), was donated by Beijing-based technology company "Yunxiao," or cloud school, through the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation (CSCLF) and the Tibet Development Fund during a ceremony in Beijing.

The cloud platform is expected to improve campus administration using technology while providing a digital teaching and learning platform.

Jing Dunquan, vice chairperson of the CSCLF, said educational IT development should be used to close the digital divide among different regions, cities and rural areas while giving more children access to quality educational resources so that they can change their fate through education.
