On 14 June, 2018, a digital learning centre for provincial governmental organisations in Changchun, the first of its kind, was set up in the People's Procuratorate of Luyuan district, Changchun. It is a new initiative of the Changchun Radio and Television University (Changchun RTVU), and is designed to assist in the development of open education in Changchun.

In 2010, entrusted by the Changchun Municipal People's Government and supported by the Changchun Municipal Education Bureau, Changchun RTVU built a public-service platform, the Changchun Digital Learning Hub, to enable people of all ages in Changchun to have access to education. A network including 102 digital learning centres for communities or towns and 4 for military bases was constructed, with a WeChat platform and a mobile terminal to help diversify media and integrate resources. 75,000 high-quality resources have been included, and the platform is both diverse and personalized, allowing anyone to learn at any time, and make progress every day.

To further the directives of the 19th National Congress of the CPC and to help develop open education in Changchun and strengthen the construction of educational institutions, the Changchun RTVU has joined hands with the People's Procuratorate of Luyuan District to build a digital learning centre and make network resources available to everyone for free.

Chang Guanqun, vice president of Changchun RTVU, said that the new centre is important for strengthening institutions and training officials, as well as for meeting the challenges of the new era. Its establishment will benefit the work of officials and help modernise institutions, enhance the integration of the university with other institutions, and promote the development of open education.

Zhang Maojin, deputy director of the Changchun Municipal Education Bureau; Zhang Yong, deputy director of the Vocational and Adult Education Department; Chang Guanqun, vice president of Changchun RTVU; and Xing Liming, chief procurator of the People's Procuratorate of Luyuan District, Changchun, all attended the unveiling.
