Online Learning Consortium (OLC) for Advancing Digital Learning and Online Development

Texas Christian University is an institutional member of the Online Learning Consortium (OLC). The Online Learning Consortium is a collaborative dedicated to advancing quality digital teaching and learning experiences designed for educators, administrators, and instructional designers. As an institutional member, TCU faculty and academic professionals can use their TCU email to enroll in a free membership account for benefits including special member pricing on all OLC workshops, programs, conferences, and events. The Member Resources page can guide your through the benefits.

Go to and log in.

Then, create an OLC account.

How do I access my OLC institutional membership benefits? 

  • You must use your TCU email address to access benefits. If you do not already have an account using your organizational email address, create a new account.
  • Then, create a free user account.
  • During the account creation process, you must choose “Allow” when asked to allow access. (This is the OLC system asking to share your information with other internal OLC systems. It is for OLC purposes ONLY.)
  • Once you create your account you will be automatically logged in and also sent an email with a link to access your account.
  • Once logged in, the system will now recognize you as a member and you can use your OLC institutional member benefits.

I already have a user account. How do I make sure I am affiliated with my institution?

  • If your current OLC user account uses your organization email address, you simply log in with that account, and you are all set!
  • If your current OLC user account does NOT use your organization email address, login to your current account, go to Account (top). This brings you to “My Info.” Scroll down to “Email,” then click “Change.” Add your organization email address and change your “Preferred Email Type” (click the X) to choose your organization email.
  • For assistance, please contact
