EEBOOKS2What kinds of online education might be developed at liberal arts colleges? How can online courses, videoconferencing, “flipped classes” and other technologies affect teaching and learning at a small liberal arts college? Our Consortium is exploring these questions collaboratively, applying our intense dedication to quality undergraduate education to the effort of identifying those technologies that improve teaching and learning on our campuses.

The resources below have been recommended by faculty, librarians and academic technologists from across the LACOL network.
