WCET finds positive trends in the world of multi-institutional consortia, systems 

October 22, 2018

The WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET) has released a new report examining the operations of multi-institutional consortia and systems in Canada and the USA. The research found that there has been a great deal of changes in the consortia and systems over the last ten years as organizations closed, opened, and transitioned to more relevant models. The survey found that  consortia and systems offered a wide variety of services, such as brokering inter-institutional partnerships, faculty development,  and sharing courses; and were relying on a more diverse set of revenue streams than before. Overall, the trends were positive, and the researchers noted that partnering in consortia or system efforts allowed institutions to accomplish more together. WCET
