How it Works
While the concept may be easy to understand, successful course sharing requires two things: a network of participating institutions and a robust, flexible course-sharing platform that addresses the needs of institutions and students.
The Acadeum Network
Acadeum’s course-sharing network includes 460+ colleges and universities and is growing every month. Many institutions choose to get started as a Home Institution, enrolling their students in courses from partner schools on the Acadeum network. Some colleges and universities join as members of an existing academic consortium, while others join on their own.
Home institutions enable students to enroll in vetted courses from like-minded colleges and universities to support student progress. The Home Institution maintains quality control and oversight of courses, and retains a portion of the tuition dollars by keeping students on campus, rather than losing them to transfer courses taken elsewhere.
Teaching Institutions make open seats in online courses available to other schools in the Acadeum network. Course sharing helps fill available spots in courses already scheduled to be taught, produces revenue, and fills classes with students from partner institutions across the country, creating a more diverse online learning experience.
