The League for Innovation in the Community College, a nonprofit membership group whose mission is to cultivate innovation in community colleges, announced the launch of the new online course-sharing consortium today.

The course-sharing consortium will be open to League for Innovation in the Community College members to join. The membership group currently has a few hundred institutional members, most of which are based in the U.S., but some of which are also located internationally.

The League for Innovation Online Course Sharing Consortium will work with a company, Acadeum, to establish online course-sharing partnerships between participating institutions. The company will provide a course-sharing platform as well as administrative support to the consortium.
