GUO Jiong1,HUANG Ronghuai1,& CHEN Geng2(1.R&D Center for Knowledge Engineering,Beijing Normal University,Beijing 100875,China;2.School of Distance and Further Education,Beijing Jiaotong University,Beijing 100876,China)  
China Modern Distance Education pilot project was launched nine years ago.These nine years have provided us with success stories and lessons in the models of teaching and management,service delivery,technical patterns,resource-building,quality control,management system,operational mechanism,and other areas of interest.These learning centers,functioning as bridges between learners and sponsoring institutions,may demonstrate how contemporary Chinese distance education is operated and evaluated.This paper introduces the current status and problems of modern distance education in China based on findings from the evaluation of Beijing Modern Distance Education Center.From the analysis of problems,the authors demonstrate the need to clarify roles and responsibilities for the centers and sponsoring institutions,to focus more on the design of learning activities,to guide students in active learning,to focus more on teaching processes,to evaluate implicit behaviors,to train and develop professionals,to improve quality assurance and evaluation measures,and to increase the weighting for learning support and web resource usage in the evaluation.
