The latest project by Wang Zhidong, founder and former CEO of Sina, turns out to be an online education service. It began beta testing in late 2012.

Named Xiaoneiwai (XNW.com), it is a social sharing platform for kids, parents and teachers. Teachers can share educational materials, send group messages to students and parents, organize online activities such as polls, among others.

It supports sharing images, videos and voice messages, and is available on iOS and Android platforms. Other widely-used communication or social services like Weibo, WeChat, QQ Groups, Feition groups and e-mail services have been integrated into Xiaoneiwai. Students and teachers can also log in with their accounts with the National Public Platform of Educational Resources, a state-run online education platform that was launched at the end of 2012.
