Also from April Meeting:

Considered Internet Course Exchange model where institutions list excess seats. Other institutions reserve seats (only charge if they use them). Offering institution grants reserve. Enrolling institution lists student data in database which is picked up by teaching institution and put in to LMS. Teaching institution teachers course and posts grade. Enrolling institution picks up grade and puts into SIS. Pricing model is based on $150/credit hour undergrad and $200/credit hour for grad. Also have a membership fee based on FTE.

Membership fee supports admin of consortium

supplemental instruction - students who have done well being hired as mentors for students currently enrolled - student to student mentoring online (Kansas & Laramie Wyoming)
