Zuoyebang, a K-12 online education startup, announced that it has just completed a $60 million Series B funding. The series is co-led by GGV Capital and Xianghe Capital, a venture capital founded by former Baidu executives, with participation of existing investors of Sequoia Capital and Legend Capital.

The new funding is earmarked for R&D, team construction and education content, according to the company’s CEO Hou Jianbin.

Officially launched in January 2014 under Baidu’s Q&A site Baidu Zhidao, Zuoyebang is an online learning platform for K-12 students, where users can seek answers by snapping photo of their problems, find teachers for one-on-one Q&A sessions, live stream videos and receive homework evaluation. The site also serves as a nexus to connect students, teachers and parents. The startup claims to have amassed over 175 million users.
