An Online Collaborative Program is a program of study where a student can work towards a credential by taking courses from a number of different colleges or universities who have joined together to offer the program. Currently BCcampus supports the co-ordination and IT infrastructure behind two programs (and more are being considered):
BCcampus and partner institutions work collaboratively to plan, coordinate and deliver these collaborative programs of study. The programs integrate educational technology in ways that maximize the service that institutions can provide to their students.
In collaborative programs, students may take online courses and programs from many institutions (teaching or participating institutions) even though they receive a credential from a single institution (their home or credentialing institution). The shared virtual learning space for students and the means for connecting the participating institutions is hosted and supported by BCcampus.
To find out which institutions are participating in collaborative programs and services, see the most recent Collaborative Programs Report on our Reports page.
