Here is a list of the 81 courses that are part of the Open Course Library.

We will have to collectively figure out how these 81 courses will best complement the existing system shared courses hosted through WashingtonOnline.

Most colleges already fill multiple sections of these commonly taught 80 (#81 is new) courses. Our system also has the ability to “pool enrollments” from multiple colleges for any online course through the WashingtonOnline cascading enrollment system (extra seats in online courses can be made available to students at other colleges).

Providing plenty of “seats” in these courses is key to meeting larger access and retention goals. Providing broad online access to these 81 courses by enabling students to take the courses at any Washington Community or Technical College, with free or very low cost instructional materials, makes higher education more affordable for all system students.
