OLC Innovate 2017 Coming Soon!!!! Plan to attend!


The Online Learning Consortium (formerly Sloan Consortium) and MERLOT invite you to submit a proposal to the Innovate 2017 conference.  

At OLC Innovate, we will conduct a series of engaging hands-on workshops aimed at fostering organic interactions and collaborative cross-disciplinary problem solving.

Together we will build new foundations for stronger, better higher education environments. And because innovation scales best when ideas are shared, our work sessions will explore emerging technologies and adapted teaching behaviors aimed at informing policy, inspiring leadership, and evolving practice at all levels impacting institutions, universities and colleges.

Advancing education innovation requires continuous visionary leadership from all disciplines. Share your expertise in online and blended learning.  For additional information go to

Community Conversations

Uploading Photos in Voices

For best results, when uploading a photo or logo to your profile or to a community, make sure your photo is at least 100 x 100 pixels in size and is square. If you upload a photo that is not square (such as one that is portrait-shaped) Voices will crop the edges to make it square, sometimes cutting off a part of the image you'd like to keep. To avoid this, crop your photo in a simple photo editor first, then upload it to Voices.
