XTOL is currently focusing on computer science and business degree programs, but will soon move into other areas as well. The University of Texas, The University of Maryland University College, and the Open University of La Salle are in the process of launching the short courses we have created.

Students work primarily online, often in teams, using collaborative technology. The program will also include periodic on-campus “face-to-face” sessions to encourage interaction between faculty and students.
