Virtual College of Texas (VCT)
The Virtual College of Texas (VCT) is a collaborative of all Texas public 2-year colleges.
VCT was created by the Texas Association of Community Colleges to facilitate sharing
of online courses among member colleges. CEOs and other high-level administrators
of VCT member colleges developed the host-provider model upon which VCT operations
rest and defined the principles of VCT's organization and management.
