East Central University uses Blackboard as its Learning Management System. Online and blended courses should get an automatic shell created inside Blackboard each semester in order for each professor to load their materials into those shells.
Back in 2015 Oklahoma became one of 27 states in the U.S. to join SARA (State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement initiative). This is a nation wide collaborative of states to make distance education courses more accessible to students across state lines and make it easier for states to regulate and institutions to participate in interstate distance education. The benefits for students include access to educational offerings, better resolution of complaints, reduced institutional costs and enhanced overall quality of distance education. East Central University signed the SARA Reciprocity Agreement: Click here for more details: State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) Overview
