The rivalry between China's top online learning apps has become even more intense this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest company to score a significant funding round is Zuoyebang, which announced today (link in Chinese) that it has raised a $1.6 billion Series E+ from investors including Alibaba Group. Other participants included returning investors Tiger Global Management, SoftBank Vision Fund, Sequoia Capital China and FountainVest Partners.

由于新冠疫情的影响,中国网络学习软件的竞争已经变得愈发的激烈。作业帮已经在今天宣布获得16亿的大笔资金投入,包括阿里集团。其他投资者,包括老虎环球基金,软银愿景基金,红杉资本中国和方源资本合伙人。

Zuoyebang's latest announcement comes just six months after it announced a $750 million Series E led by Tiger Global and FountainVest. The latest financing brings Zuoyebang's total raised so far to $2.93 billion. The company did not disclose its latest worth, but Reuters reported in September that it was raising at a $10 billion valuation.

就在6个月前,作业邦刚刚宣布了由老虎环球基金和方源资本牵头的7.5亿美元E轮融资。迄今为止,作业邦的融资总额达到29.3亿美元。

作业帮没有披露其最新价值,但路透社在9月份的报道称,该公司的估值将达到100亿美元。

One of Zuoyebang's main competitors is Yuanfudao, which announced in October that it had reached a $15.5 billion valuation after closing a $2.2 billion round led by Tencent. This pushed Yuanfudao ahead of Byju as the world's most valuable edtech company. Another popular online learning app in China is Yiqizuoye, which is backed by Singapore's Temasek.

猿辅导作为作业邦的主要竞争对手之一,在10月份的时候宣布其市场估值在腾讯牵头的22亿美元融资完成后,已达到155亿美元。

这使得猿辅导超越印度的教育科技公司Byju's,成为世界上最有价值的教育科技公司。另一款在中国流行的在线学习应用是由新加坡淡马锡公司支持开发的app—一起作业。

Zuoyebang offers online courses, live lessons and homework help for kindergarten to 12th grade students, and claims about 170 million monthly active users, about 50 million of whom use the service each day. In comparison, there were about 200 million K-12 students in 2019 in China, according to the Ministry of Education (link in Chinese).

作业邦为幼儿园到高三的学生提供在线课程、实景课程和作业帮助,据称每月约有1.7亿活跃用户,其中约5000万每天使用该服务。

与之相比,根据教育部的数据,2019年从幼儿园到高中,中国的在校学生有大约有2亿人。

In fall 2020, the total number of students in Zuoyebang's paid livestream classes reached more than 10 million, setting an industry record, the company claims. While a lot of the growth was driven by the pandemic, Zuoyebang founder Hou Jianbin said in the company's funding announcement that it expects online education to continue growing in the longer term, and will invest in K-12 classes and expand its product categories.

据该公司称,2020年秋,作业邦付费直播课程的学生总数达到了1000多万,创下了行业记录。

虽然很大一部分增长是由疫情推动的,但作业邦创始人侯建斌在公司的融资公告中表示,预计在线教育在较长期内将继续增长,并将投资K-12课程同时扩大产品类别。
