Online Learning Consortium Announces 2016 Priorities

Inside HigherEd | January 29, 2016 - The Online Learning Consortium will this year rebrand its main conferences and expand its Quality Scorecard, according to plans released Thursday. The organization's scorecard, which colleges can use to evaluate their own online programs, will soon be offered in Spanish and include new quality indicators for programs that mix online and in-person instruction (the OLC said last year it would put part of a $2.5 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation toward updating the scorecard).

The OLC's International Conference for Online Learning, held every fall in Orlando, Fla., will now be known as OLC Accelerate, while its Blended Learning and ET4Online events have been replaced by a new conference, OLC Innovate.
