What is the XJTLU Learning Mall?

The XJTLU Learning Mall acts as an innovation and entrepreneurial research and development hub as well as a centre for knowledge exchange and school-enterprise cooperation. It promotes the concept of lifelong learning. It also works jointly with the industry schools of XJTLU Entrepreneur College (Taicang) and the academic schools of XJTLU, collaborating on critical innovation projects and initiatives. The XJTLU Learning Mall was officially launched on 22 May 2020, welcoming its first round of new partners: AliCloud, McGraw-Hill, AMT, Skillshare, Talespin, Seentao, CiWei, Hujiang, and more.

The XJTLU Learning Mall provides online and onsite space, or “storefronts,” for top global partners to share their learning content with its users. It integrates onsite and online programmes developed by the University, industry, and external partners, offering them as learning resources to a wide net of different education consumers. The overarching goal of the XJTLU Learning Mall is to act as an engaging innovation community, allowing its collaborators to freely develop their resources within its creative hub.

The online space of XJTLU Learning Mall is an online community platform gathering educational products and resources created by the University schools and top global partners.

The onsite XJTLU Learning Mall facility is integrated with the University’s facilities, including both SIP and Taicang campuses, and more locations with the development of XJTLU.

"Storefront" space, whether online or onsite, represents a unique opportunity for education-focused businesses to showcase resources through the XJTLU Learning Mall, with its links to internal and external stakeholders, particularly those who offer content and services. By fostering an inviting space and leveraging premier partners’ strengths, the XJTLU Learning Mall will forge a 21st-century alliance of like-minded entrepreneurs to make better contributions to the development of higher education and social progress in China and the world.

Below are answers to some of the frequently asked questions we receive about how to engage with the various learning services offered by the XJTLU Learning Mall:

What do XJTLU Learning Mall's non-degree programmes and courses include?

XJTLU Learning Mall courses come from a variety of qualified experts and professionals from XJTLU, the XJTLU Learning Mall itself, as well as local, national and global partners. As courses have different origins, there is no fixed list of what each includes. Courses may consist of everything from lectures, videos, presentations, texts, and readings, as well as additional resources and practice activities to enhance the learning experience. It is highly recommended that learners explore each course description as well as partner virtual stores to see what might be of interest. If you are having any trouble, you can work with one of our Learning Design Consultants to create a specific learning pathway and portfolio for you.

How do I take an XJTLU Learning Mall or partner course?

XJTLU Learning Mall and partner courses are available both on-demand/self-paced as well as moderated with specific start dates. You can search for your course of interest and see when it is open for enrolment.

XJTLU Learning Mall bespoke courses are accessible from several devices and platforms, including a desktop, laptop, and mobile phone. Partner courses are available through various devices and can be accessed by channelling through their virtual storefront and signing up for the desired programme.

After you enrol in an XJTLU Learning Mall bespoke course or service, you can learn your new course by logging in and navigating to the My Courses page. Partner courses provided on their platforms may have different participation approaches.

Do I need to start my XJTLU Learning Mall course or service at a specific time? How long do I have to complete each course?

The start dates of courses vary depending on who offers them, whether or not they are self-paced or moderated, and where they may be located (e.g., online, onsite, hybrid, etc.). Many courses have no expiry dates, so you will continue to have access to them even after completing them. For each course, the validity period can be found on its introduction page.

What is XJTLU Learning Mall's qualification? What can I get after learning the courses? Is that accredited?

XJTLU Learning Mall is a part of XJTLU, supplying non-degree learning resources and opportunities. Our mission is to provide skill-based courses that senior experts teach in their areas to enable lifelong learning. Every course we offer has gone through a systematic quality review. Learners can acquire a Certificate of Completion for some of the courses they complete. The certificates are endorsed by both XJTLU Learning Mall and its partners, so they are widely authorised and recognised. Currently, XJTLU Learning Mall is planning to establish its credit system to demonstrate learners’ learning progress and achievement in terms of knowledge, ability and accomplishment.

What if I want to preview a course? Is there any way to do that?

The ability to preview a course depends on the course type and the course provider. Some courses have Free and Taster modules, giving you a feel for the course and how it is set up. Additionally, the Freemium section of the platform provides some self-paced courses which you can directly join and learn.

How can I pay for a course?

The XJTLU Learning Mall supports several payment methods, including Alipay, WeChat Pay, etc. Different courses may support different payment methods, but you can always check them on the course purchase page and select your preferred method to pay for the course.
