In December of 1999, seven of Iowa’s community colleges formed a partnership and organized the Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC). Representatives from each partner college participated in a comprehensive planning process to design and implement the consortium’s technical infrastructure as well as establish objectives, policies, and procedures.
The initial objectives were to establish resources and applications, train online instructors, develop online courses, coordinate student services support, and implement an informational Web site. The ICCOC was able to obtain these objectives through the commitment of all consortium partners to provide quality online educational opportunities to students.
Today the ICCOC continues to assist our partner consortium colleges deliver quality online education to students all over the world. It has been our constant endeavor to provide training, communication, standards of quality, a collaborative working environment and a variety of learning opportunities.
