2019 Novel Coronavirus
Abstract:School delays caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus are now widespread in China, and long vacation can lead to students’ slackness in study. Therefore, access to online courses is more important than ever. Using keywords related to LIS curriculum and conducting search in Chinese MOOC platforms, the authors analyzed the contents of the LIS courses. The authors sorted out and summarized the syllabi, contents, and evaluation of courses provided during the outbreak of 2019 novel coronavirus and tried to answer the following questions: How many Chinese LIS schools provide courses on MOOC platforms? What courses do Chinese LIS schools provide? How do students evaluate LIS MOOCs during the 2019 novel coronavirus period? The analysis results show that the courses at all levels, including fundamental research, design development, and practical courses, play different roles. 58 LIS courses are provided, among which 18 are excellent courses, 14 are provided by iSchools. The students(including some university librarians) think that MOOCs are significant and easy to understand when they face the challenges of the 2019 novel coronavirus. And the courses are highly related to the 2019 novel coronavirus, for example, questions such as “Faced with the 2019 novel coronavirus, what can big data analytics do?”, “Regarding the 2019 novel coronavirus, what resources and services do public libraries provide?” are raised in the discussion sections.
