WCET’s vision is to advance learner access and success through postsecondary digital learning for a more equitable world. We invite you to join us in achieving that goal.

What is WCET?

WCET brings together colleges and universities, higher education organizations, and companies to collectively improve the quality and reach of digital learning.  We achieve this by the cooperative exchange of resources, solutions, and services among our members.

“WCET is unparalleled as a resource for policy analysis impacting online education, and the relationships I have built with colleagues through the organization have been incredible. I encourage anyone looking to build their expertise or professional relationships to get involved.”

Jory Hadsell, Vice Chancellor and CIO, Technology, Foothill-De Anza Community College District

“WCET is always my ‘pick’ whether I’m looking for detailed, in-depth policy analysis or simply wanting to connect with a community of leaders in digital education to think through the pressing issues of the day. So often I find myself sharing something I have learned through my WCET network — a clear sign of the extraordinary value I find in this organization.”

Shannon Riggs, Executive Director of Academic Programs and Learning Innovation, Oregon State University

“I’ve been a WCET member for years. What hooked me was the incredible in-depth analysis and synthesis of the changing authorization regulations in the early 2010s, but as the years have rolled by, it’s the network of kind, empathetic, and helpful colleagues with whom to collaborate and partner that has made this a must-have membership organization for me.”

Robert Griffiths, Associate Vice President Distance Education, The Ohio State University
