JiaoTong Global Virtual ClassroomInitiative encourages Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) faculty to co-create collaborative online international learning courses with peers at universities around the world. Virtual exchanges foster valuable, sustainable, and accessible international experiences for all SJTU students.
