Effective July 1, 2013, the eTech Ohio Commission was renamed and reconstitutesd as the Broadcast Educational Media Commission (BEMC). On that date, all duties and rules of the eTech related to the state's educational broadcasting services, including educational television and radio and radio reading services, were transferred to the new BEMC. Duties that were not transferred to BEMC as a result of this reconstitution were either eliminated or transferred to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents or the Department of Education.
VNOC services were transferred to the new BEMC and continue to support K-12 and higher education videoconferencing services.
