Board of regents to expand eCore

A resolution adopted Sept. 9 by the board of regents will support expanding eCore online general education offerings and make these courses available to students at all comprehensive universities, state universities and state colleges within the University System of Georgia.

eCore, which began in 2000, allows students to take the first two years of their curriculum online and offers the “core” courses in English, mathematics, science, history and the social sciences. Course credit earned in eCore is transferable to any USG institution.

Currently, eCore is only offered through 11 USG institutions. The goal of the expansion is to make it much easier for students to access the courses at an additional 16 institutions by fall of 2015, if not before.
