The OETC Consortium

The OETC Consortium is made up of educational institutions, united under a common belief that everyone should have access to the tools for a great education.

Our consortium membership is concentrated in the Pacific Northwest, but includes members from every region of the United States—rural and central, large and small, old and new.

Who We Are

As a nonprofit, our organization doesn’t answer to shareholders, sell customer data or solicit donations.

We believe that technology presents meaningful opportunities to improve teaching and learning, and is necessary to prepare students for an interconnected world.


OETC is professionally managed by a small, hands-on team of individuals in Salem, Oregon.
