From our institutional offerings to our advisory services, our focus is on driving best practices for  Quality Online Learning.   Our platform is based on the Five Pillars of Quality Online Education – LEARNING EFFECTIVENESS, FACULTY SATISFACTION, STUDENT SATISFACTION, SCALE, AND ACCESS – Essentially building blocks providing the support for successful online learning.

What’s in a Name?

Online Learning is Who We Are and What We Do.

Two decades ago we began our mission as the Sloan Consortium, providing early online educators with original research, leading-edge instruction and best-practice publications, to community-driven conferences and expert guidance. Our mission has not changed.  Just our name, we are the Online Learning Consortium.
