The new corporate structure will provide KanHan EDU the necessary resources powering the expansion into a comprehensive service e-publisher catering to the needs of the education and training industry in the adoption of e-learning.

KanHan EDU began its first e-publishing endeavor as early as 2003, in providing Hong Kong the first self-paced Putonghua eLearning platform for working group(e-Putonghua). The initiative has since been further invigorated into publishing a number of other Chinese related online learning platforms for the primary and secondary school market

The platform also provides mock tests based on the examination framework set by the China's National Linguistics Work Committee on Putonghua, helping users assess their Putonghua standard.
