Knowledge Network, a brand-new online platform  

A brand-new online learning platform, Knowledge Network, was launched in April. The new platform allows users, once registered, to gain access to the University's free learning resources anywhere and anytime. Interaction is one of the key elements of this dynamic website. Besides learning from the subject(s) here, users can get connected with one another and the OUHK through the 'Blog' and 'Ask Professor' at the site, or work out their learning plan via 'iCounselling' etc. Join us and tell us what you think about this vibrant and diversified learning platform.
