With the new training programs commencing mid-October 2010, China Education Resources will now be providing valuable resources to teachers, students and education professionals in seven provinces in China.
"We are finding that more and more teachers are becoming familiar with our products and services as we continue to roll-out our four-step program in each province in China. Presently, we offer 25 online training courses and over 50,000 kindergarten through 12th grade lesson plans relating to science, math, history, geography, physics, biology and many other subjects.
