The OnlineCommunityColleges.org consortium, website launch and specifically ICC were mentioned in Chris Mullins’ article digest this week. Chris is the executive director of the Instructional Technology Council of AACC, of which we are a member. Reps from OCC.org were at the AACC conference promoting the consortium (and of course hoping to recruit new members.)
We have an OCC.org badge on our Virtual Campus web page, http://icc.edu/virtualCampus/, and continue to look for ways to fully participate and benefit from the consortium. The website is a start and as the state authorization requirements continue to unfold, we may see a bigger return on investment in that area.
Although we haven’t seen a flood of new students from our OCC.org connections, the OCC.org staff members have been very responsive to our input and ICC has helped shape the purpose and function of the consortium. Thanks for the opportunity to participate!
