The Alabama Consortium for Technology and Learning  (ALACTL) grew out of a proposal made at the June 2010 ACCS Presidents' Association meeting. In 2010-2011, representatives from 15 Alabama Community College System institutions worked as part of a planning committee to establish ALACTL's bylaws and other guiding documents. The bylaws were officially adopted on August 29, 2011.

 

The ALACTL is a member service organization that provides opportunities for collaboration, resource sharing and achieving economies of scale in procurement of instructional technology resources.

The objectives of the ALACTL are to:

  1. Develop a community of institutions that offers quality courses to support student learning, access and success. 
  2. Promote faculty innovation, training and development in the use of instructional technologies. 
  3. Encourage the development of effective policies, procedures and best practices related to instructional technologies.
  4. Publish and disseminate reports on the efforts of the ALACTL and its member institutions.
  5. Disseminate information concerning state and federal regulations related to education to ALACTL members.
  6. Participate in advisory groups as requested by the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education.
  7. Encourage and facilitate multi-institution purchase agreements to achieve economies of scale in procurement of instructional technology resources.
  8. Coordinate activities with other organizations and efforts that add value to the efforts of ALACTL members.
