• REGION ONE Distance Learning Consortium





    History of Distance Learning Consortium

    The Region One Distance Learning Consortium started back in 2004 as a solution to provide information from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to school districts within the region. The Texas Education Telecommunication Network (TETN) used video conferencing as the main venue of communication. Later, Connect2Texas was then created to share programs and events, as well as to add content and provide important information to school districts within the entire state. Ten years later, around 2015, new software started to emerge where the internet became a new channel of communication and platforms like Zoom started growing in popularity.  
      In 2020, COVID-19 accelerated a new era of communication, where distance learning and remote working became a norm for an entire year. Hybrid and blended teaching and learning are nowadays the current way to share knowledge and information. Aware of this transition and new educational trends, the Region One Distance Learning Consortium (DLC) has adapted to the school districts' needs by reshaping the DLC services.

    We invite you to navigate to the Region One DLC website and become familiar with all the new services and opportunities being offered to all the school districts that decide to join us.
