UM System President Mun Choi wants to increase the number of online courses and programs offered. The board of curators says more online classes are necessary for student flexibility. 

Curator David Steelman says the four campuses need to find a way to use distance learning so students can graduate on time. 

The board of curators' task force will work on solving problems and removing boundaries from online courses among the four campuses.
