East Central University only uses Blackboard as its Learning Management System. Shells for online and blended courses are automatically generated inside Blackboard each semester in order for each professor to load materials into those shells.
In 2015, Oklahoma became 1 of 27 states in the U.S. to join SARA (State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement initiative). This is a nation-wide collaboration of states to make distance education courses more accessible to students across state lines and make it easier for states to regulate and for institutions to participate in inter-state 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.
