This paper is dedicated to address the new educational technologies (especially the Internet) provide big challenges to high education institutions. In contrast to traditional teaching, Distance Education (DE) is particularly enhanced by technology development. However, in Chinese context, either traditional teaching or DE has its strengths and limitations. This paper focuses on introducing a new model of higher education, which is to combine DE and face-to-face teaching to deliver education services to college students. It takes an international joint program run by Zhejiang University City College (ZUCC) in association with the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in Australia as a good example to illustrate how this new model works effectively and efficiently.
