Quottly recently sat down with leaders from the California Virtual Campus, the Idaho State Board of Education, and Montana University System to hear how they are using course and program sharing, a new kind of collaboration that helps them expand their reach, increase access, and improve completion for their students.

What is course and program sharing?

Course sharing enables colleges and universities to join together in a collaborative effort to share courses and programs across their institutions. It provides many benefits, including the ability for institutions to fill empty seats. And, it helps support changing workforce needs and boosts completion rates for students.

A journey to course and program sharing

During our conversation, our panelists shared their system’s journey with course sharing. They highlighted the challenges facing their institutions. And, they also discussed the needs they are working to fulfill and the outcomes they are achieving. Finally, they shared advice and best practices they learned along the way.

The panelists also provided their perspective and answered questions on important topics such as:

  • Overcoming policy hurdles
  • Ensuring course quality and equivalency
  • Addressing revenue sharing and the cost of courses
  • Managing learning management system environments

Watch the on-demand webinar to learn more about how course sharing is offering new ways to solve student and institutional challenges.
