The Online Judaic Studies Consortium (OJSC) is based on a highly collaborative model. Course instruction for students in the OJSC comes from schools/teachers that join the OJSC. Teachers from schools that join the OJSC develop and then teach online courses to students within the program. Through this collaboration each member school receives seats for their students to take innovative Judaic studies courses from the OJSC catalog, taught by expert faculty, in exchange for teacher participation and discounted membership fees. Students collaborate with their peers at other day schools, teachers receive valuable professional development, and schools gain scheduling flexibility and expanded offerings.
