Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Garden State Distance Learning Consortium (GSDLC).

The Garden State Distance Learning Consortium is a nonprofit organization formed by educators to promote the development of distance learning (DL), and foster the application of video conferencing within the classroom setting. The Garden State Distance Learning Consortium is embarking on innovative ways to incorporate instructional technologies that validate and punctuate what the teachers are doing inside the classroom. The Garden State Distance Learning Consortium was created and organized exclusively to benefit and provide assistance in promoting distance learning opportunities for the educational communities of New Jersey. Our mission is to create a learning network, focused on expanding classroom experiences for the educational community at large through an association of schools and affiliates, using the mediums of teleconferencing and web based collaboration tools.  As a consortium, this focus will include sharing resources between schools and affiliates, providing opportunities and advancing educational programs which otherwise would not be possible.
