BEIJING — A total of 17.75 million college students in China had taken part in online learning as of May 8 since classes moved online in early February as college campuses were closed due to the COVID-19 epidemic, an official with the Ministry of Education said Thursday.

The courses these students attended were remotely delivered by 1.03 million teachers from 1,454 universities across the country, Wu Yan with the MOE said at a press conference.
