Living in a digital and globalized world means one can learn things at any time and any place. The recent launch of an online-education institute aims to offer courses taught by lecturers from across the world.

L-Art University started operating on May 20 to provide training to China's professionals in the field of art and culture. It also caters to art lovers and collectors, who visit museums.

Those interested can take the courses by visiting the university's website at or download its app.

On offer now are 10 courses, including 3-D animation, filmmaking, exhibition design, 20th-century European art and museum management.

Each course takes seven to 14 classes, each of which is a 30-minute film uploaded once a week, and the course prices start at a few hundred yuan.

The lecturers are from Hong Kong, Paris, London and Los Angeles and are experienced teachers at art schools. Some are also artists.

Meanwhile, the curriculum is set to be enriched as more courses on design, architecture and the art market are composed, filmed and produced. About 180 courses will be available by the end of 2018, according to Lyu Peng, the Chinese art historian who heads L-Art University.

Lyu does a 12-session course on the history of modern Chinese art.
