  • WCET’s annual meeting continues to be one of the top-rated conferences in the country on e-learning in higher education. The conference program broadly captures a host of issues such as innovative uses of technology to enhance teaching, student retention, marketing, alumni relations, and student services.

  • WCET’s awards recognizes outstanding innovation, quality improvement, or achievements in using educational technology tools, techniques, or services by postsecondary institutions and organizations.

  • WCET has five focus areas - emerging technologies, faculty success, managing e-learning, policy and regulations, and student success - which contain resources such as talking points, Q&A, lessons learned, videos, and more.

  • The WCET Leadership Summits are designed to bring together educational leaders and practitioners from forward-thinking institutions and enterprises that are actively pursuing answers to the big questions in higher education.

  • WCET Research aims to shed light on topics that support the operation, instruction and technology implementation of technology-enhanced higher education.

  • Working collaboratively, institutions can navigate the state regulations processes more efficiently than working on their own. The WCET State Authorization Network (SAN)  supports its members through access to experts and networking among others seeking to comply.

  • WCET’s webcasts offer convenience, access to experts around the country, timely information, and practical application of best practices in e-learning.

  • The WCET Z Initiative connects institution-level OER champions, legislators, state systems of higher education, educational technologists, and national OER leaders.
