In March, students from Peking University in China, Seoul National University in South Korea, and the University of Tokyo in Japan, will attend common lectures via video conferencing, according to a report.
As part of the new course, East Asian Media Analysis run by the Graduate School of Seoul National University, three professors from China, Japan and South Korea will take turns in providing video lectures, allowing students to watch in real-time.
Students across the three countries can communicate and discuss a variety of subjects through use of the video connection with their foreign counterparts in English. Relevant professors will also visit these three universities to meet with students.
Seoul National University and the University of Tokyo started the video course in 2008. This is the first year for Peking University to participate in the course.
