What is COIL?

Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) projects will enable you to collaborate virtually with students from different countries, through activities guided by a facilitator.

Imagine taking a course on Business, Engineering, or the Humanities, but sharing contents and collaborative activities with students from countries such as Lebanon, Japan, or Russia!


  • The teachers involved in the program (local and foreign) are the ones who create the content of the course and put it into practice for at least 4 weeks.
  • Projects are developed among UDEM students and multicultural groups.
  • An agreement is established, by the parties involved, on the technological platform to be used during the virtual collaboration process.
  • Students remain physically in the institution where they are enrolled and are evaluated by the course's teacher.


  • Internationalization of the curriculum.
  • International networking training.
  • Development of intercultural dialogue.
  • Teacher internationalization (publications and presentations).
  • Academic training within a global context.
  • Development of intercultural competences.
  • Value in SICA.
  • Application for the Internationalization at Home Award.



The class connects in real time through different platforms.


The activities are online. Students must connect outside of class to work together.
