The IOLC was created as a forum for collaboration among stakeholders to address the technical skills gap in the workplace. Our group seeks to accelerate the development, adoption, and widespread use of the Internet for technology skills acquisition, and thus provide a steady stream of job-ready workers to fuel the Global economy.
The IOLC’s Founding Members are prominent leaders from the most respected corporations in the world. They guide all IOLC work streams and develop all IOLC processes.
Contributing Members from a wide array of arenas including industry, government agencies, academia, non-profits and content publishers are welcome to join our ranks. We welcome organizations who would like to join as steering group members.
