LOS ANGELES (AP) - Students enrolled at the University of California system would soon be able to take online courses offered by other campuses.

Some UC schools already offer certain online courses, but they're mostly targeted at their own students during the summer.

The Los Angeles Times reports the new "cross campus enrollment" will allow students from one school to log onto the Internet and attend class offered by another campus.

The $10 million experiment will start off small, with only four campuses participating in the winter quarter. It's funded from a pool of money for online education and technology approved by the state Legislature and Gov. Jerry Brown.

The governor has criticized the UC system for being slow to adopt online education.
