Although the decision was finalized last March, Reuters reports on the Consortia today:
“Pursuing an enterprise-class hosted solution was the goal of our institutions,” said Kurt Snodgrass, Vice Chancellor for IT and Telecommunications for the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. “After extensive evaluation, it was determined that Desire2Learn’s solution would enable Oklahoma Higher Education to leverage a consortia model as well as the capabilities of the statewide research network. The key factor involved in the decision-making was functionality and Desire2Learn set itself apart from the others. More importantly, the outcome is a true partnership between our institutions and Desire2Learn – all in an effort to meet the online learning needs of Oklahoma students.” Read complete Reuters article here.
