DigiTex operates as a consortium that
Since its founding as the Virtual College of Texas in 1998, DigiTex has facilitated inter-institutional course sharing across the state, with more than 50,000 students accessing courses needed for completion of credentials. We recently partnered with Acadeum for more effective and efficient course sharing in Texas and potentially beyond.
We lead the statewide consortium of Quality Matters, a national nonprofit that provides research-based tools for implementation of quality assurance in course design, helping to facilitate the success of online learners.
DigiTex supports the adaptation, development, and implementation of Open Educational Resources (OER) at colleges and universities in Texas, including organizing convenings and other professional development activities and conducting a statewide survey on OER policy and practice.
We offer our colleges membership in the State Authorization Network (SAN), a system that provides information, training, webinars, and other resources to help colleges comply with the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and other regulations.
