Online Course Sharing Consortium Lets Students Enroll in Partner Courses

For students looking to enroll in courses not currently available at their institution, they may now be able to take that single course online with another.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, the Council of Independent Colleges has launched the Online Course Sharing Consortium, where students from participating institutions can take individuals courses not being offered that term – online through other partner institutions and through a revenue share model between the two institutions.

The takeaway? While this model can create some competitive fears, it also provides a very interesting path forward for private non-profits who no longer need to offer every course in every term in order to provide their students with a terrific academic experience. So how can we find creative ways like these to maximize course availability for our students, and course efficiency for our bottom lines?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
