Tsinghua University in Beijing, China reported a teaching case related to the experience of conducting a distance-learning course entitled “Digital Image Processing.” The course is at the graduate level for students of continuing education who are separately located in more than 60 cities around the country. This course was conducted twice with an interval of 2 years (in academic years 2000-2001 and 2002-2003). A number of tasks for improvements were performed based on the lesson learned from the first round, and their effects were justified by the second round. The organization background is described. Information about the course setting and related tools for the course conduction are provided. The outputs and evaluation of the experience are also presented. From this experimental based case, some helpful insights for the utilization and management of modern educational concepts and information technology in distance learning would be obtained. They include: more studies on the special requirements of distance learning should be continued; more concerns on the particularity of working students should be taken into the course designing and conduction; as well as more advantages of the progress of network technology should be followed.
