Share YOUR Story 

We value and recognize the importance of community and know that we would not be where we are today were it not for your contributions over the last 25 years. We invite you to share your OLC story of the past – so that we can better prepare for the future – together. Learn more in our blog #WeAreOLC: Equity and Identity in Storytelling. 

We invite you to share your own OLC stories and memories through:

  • Narratives/blogs
  • Photos (be featured on the Padlet bulletin board above!)
  • Videos

Join in our quest to story the past (so that we can better prepare for the future) by submitting entries using this GOOGLE FORM. You can also post a photo with a short narrative to social media, just remember to use #WeAreOLC.

OLC Community Blogs & Memories 

OLC community members (YOU!) are sharing their memories or OLC and experiences in online learning over the past 25 years. We welcome you to participate – send us YOUR story to share, or simply read other’s memories and reflect on how far we’ve all come to be here – today. VIEW BLOGS & MEMORIES! 

OLC History Videos

In 2009 and 2010, interviews were conducted with individuals who played critical roles in the development of the Anytime, Anyplace Learning Program. Ralph Gomory and Frank Mayadas provide their perspectives as officers of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in conceiving and administering the program. We also hear brief stories of the individuals who, as a result of grant projects, have made significant contributions to the field of online learning. Watch Videos.

OLC Community Videos 

We have invited the entire OLC community to join us in celebrating our 25th anniversary by sharing your stories, memories, and insight over the past 25 years (and your future outlook, if you wish) through photos, blogs, and videos. Watch Videos.
