Huitao Technology Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: HHT), a company which is in the process of disposing its legacy ready-mix concrete materials business and transitioning into an innovative education service provider, announced today that its jointly developed online education platform with Color China has entered the final testing phase and is expected to launch in early May 2020.
Pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement signed on March 30, 2020, Huitao Technology and Color China will collaborate in producing and streaming celebrity-taught online lessons and celebrity generated content videos on this platform. The platform will also create a live-streaming and audio community and serve as an e-commerce channel for commercialized celebrity IP products.
Registered in Hong Kong, Color China is considered to be a significant live-entertainment organizer in Asia, hosting more than 100 live concerts every year and is home to massive media assets in music production, songwriting, musical instruments and performing arts. Color China aims to recruit an All-Star Crew to be coaches on the Color Star program, including top-notch professional vocalists, producers, musicians and more.
The rapid spread of COVID-19, and the subsequent stay-at-home orders that have been issued by large number of governments around the world to contain the pandemic, have helped fundamentally underscore the prominence and benefits of online education. Online programs will continue to play a large role in the education industry even after the coronavirus outbreak is contained.
Mr. Yang (Sean) Liu, Chief Executive Officer of HHT commented, “We are very excited to cooperate with Color China to bring forward a pioneering learning experience and curriculum to our students. This platform will provide students direct access to well-known celebrities and music artists.”
