A major selling point of the organization seems to be its efforts to ensure students receive the credit they deserve for any distance courses completed in New York, making them a vital resource to any distance student who earns their degree across several institutions.
Two leading advocates of online education in New York are the New York Distance Learning Association (NYDLA) and the New York State Distance Learning Consortium (NYSDLC).
NYDLA identifies itself as the, “Premier remote work, distance/digital learning and collaboration association in the United States and beyond.” While such associations are often geared towards students in need of a directory of courses and cross-institutional exchanges, the NYDLA is instead focused on the professionals of online education, providing them with resources like blogs, conferences and podcasts that track the latest efforts in distance education in New York.
