Online Learning Consortium Effective Practices

To help make quality education online part of everyday life, accessible and affordable for anyone, anywhere, at any time, in a wide variety of disciplines, OLC (formerly, Sloan-C) shares effective practices online.

OLC focuses on five pillars of quality in online education: student satisfaction, access, learning effectiveness, faculty satisfaction and institutional cost effectiveness. For each of these areas, pillar editors are collecting practices that are innovative and replicable. See especially the Effective Practices for Learning Effectiveness.
