Coronavirus cases are increasing rapidly across the globe, and quarantines and social distancing policies have caused schools to use online delivery as alternatives to in-person classes.

The Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE) issued instructions for online teaching, providing 24,000 online courses from more than 20 online platforms free of charge.

The impact of epidemic diseases on society should never be ignored in history. They have even shaped powerful social evolution no less than wars, revolutions and economic crises, as Professor Frank M. Snowden pointed out in his book Epidemics and Society: From the Black Death to the Present and course Epidemics in Western Society Since 1600 with Frank Snowden. From the List of Epidemics by Wikipedia, there are no less than one outbreaks each year worldwide.

To deliver reliable and scientific information underpinning the novel Coronavirus outbreak, researchers from universities and healthcare organizations are providing the latest free MOOCs about COVID-19 on different platforms.
