Welcome to Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)! This program allows you to collaborate on course projects virtually with students who reside in other countries!

Every semester, several LaGuardia professors develop COIL projects to create an engaging learning environment for their students. In Spring I 2022, several LaGuardia classes will include international virtual collaborations! All you need to do is sign up for any of the courses below that interest you!
