UWEC instructors, staff, and students have access to create free accounts through the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) for resources related to teaching and learning in online modalities. OLC shares that they are a “collaborative community of higher education leaders and innovators, dedicated to advancing quality digital teaching and learning experiences designed to reach and engage the modern learner – anyone, anywhere, anytime.”
