Forging partnerships and collaboration within the consortium has been a continuous learning process for Hispanic Educational Telecommunications System (HETS) consortium. This paper will examine the accomplishments, and lessons learned throughout the planning, coordination, and development of this consortium. The paper addresses several challenges and successful solutions that have been part of the HETS development process. Major challenges included the integration of technologies to widen interconnection opportunities, the language and cultural diversity among the members of the constituency, the organizational structure of the consortium, the planning and coordination of program offerings, faculty training and collaboration, and building a virtual leadership through a distributed team of institutional representatives.
