Sixteen years since its establishment, XJTLU has developed three education models coined XJTLU 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 respectively with efforts grounded in the University’s characteristics and future development trends, to radiate meaningful impacts on education in both China and around the world. To support the effective running of XJTLU education phylosophy, on 22 May, 2020, the University launched the XJTLU Learning Mall, a support platform that draws on first-rate global educational resources and integrates online and offline operations, creating a multi-faceted learning environment that spans across regions, age groups, level of education, and interests. In July 2022, Learning Mall transformed into two platforms - Learning Mall Core and Learning Mall Premium. Learning Mall Core provides online learning and teaching supports for XJTLU students and staff in degreed studies, and Learning Mall Premium offers content and services in non-degree education for all users.
