The Sloan Consortium or Sloan-C is an organization that maintains a directory of degrees and certificate programs that are offered by various accredited online educational institutions.
The Sloan Consortium provides consulting services and workshops to help the educational institutions to continuously improve the quality and extent of their online programs. They also recognize the educational institutions that demonstrate excellence and effective practices through their annual Sloan-C Awards.
My attention was caught by this organization because of their extensive and quality surveys that pertains to the overall performance or status of online education. I like the way they present the issues because they provide comprehensive background of the issue and lay down the facts in the form of evidences.
Their surveys and publications are very worthy not only to the educational institutions and to the government but also to ordinary people who are interested to know the world of online learning.
