One of the most significant changes in the world in the past 30 years is the opening of China to the outside world and its engagement with that world. In the initial years of the opening, external forces influenced China’s economy, regional balances, bureaucracy, as well as the political authority of local leaders in the coastal areas. More recently, the world is feeling the effects of a rising China which seeks resources and talent from all around the globe and uses its financial wealth to strengthen its position in the world. This course tracks the opening of China up from 1978 until it joins the WTO, focusing on how the world affected China’s internal development. We then look at various aspects of China’s “going out strategy” — its search for energy, talent, as well as its relations with the United States and the states within the Asia-Pacific region. The instructor has been deeply engaged in research on all these topics, having lived in China during various stages of China’s opening to the outside world.

This course has been very well designed and organized with valuable contents related to the subject. I've leant what I expected.

Meanwhile, the only 3 suggestions I have are: 1) More involvement of the course professor or mentor to organize and propel the discussion in the modules or forums; 2) Better design for the weekly quizzes -- Weekly quizzes are relatively pretty carefully designed compared to the MOOCs I previously taken, but still some minor mistakes to recorrect; 3) I'm looking forward to more suggested readings/materials related to the subject.

The course instructor is super. The information is comprehensive. The videos are well produced with plenty of information. I also did Part 1 which was excellent as well. I do understand China much better which was my goal.
