Priority Areas


Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources are the ultimate catalyst for student success and faculty collaboration, making higher education more accessible, inclusive, innovative and cost-effective from the first day of class through graduation.


Accessibility is just the beginning; empathy is our end goal. The best online learning experiences are inclusive of the needs of all learners, enabling students to succeed regardless of abilities, supported by design and technology.

Advanced Technologies

Teaching in the 21st century demands timely, quality and relevant pathways for skill development. What seems like a moving target amid an ever-changing technology landscape can be simplified through collaborative learning.

Online Collaboration Groups

Opened to all e-learning innovators in 2015, the Council for Online Learning Excellence (COLE) sought to grow capacity for online teaching and learning expertise through collaboration. Recognizing a greater need to scale the key initiatives of COLE and leverage shared resources and technologies, the Online Consortium of Oklahoma (OCO) invited members to join in October 2018 and has continued to grow and develop.
