MITx: Online Education van MIT

Deze week lanceerde MIT iets nieuws, namelijk MITx:

MIT-campus (These picture is licensed on CC-BY-SA Photographer: Willem van Valkenburg)MITx will offer a portfolio of MIT courses through an online interactive learning platform that will:

    • organize and present course material to enable students to learn at their own pace
    • feature interactivity, online laboratories and student-to-student communication
    • allow for the individual assessment of any student’s work and allow students who demonstrate their mastery of subjects to earn a certificate of completion awarded by MITx
    • operate on an open-source, scalable software infrastructure in order to make it continuously improving and readily available to other educational institutions.

MIT expects that this learning platform will enhance the educational experience of its on-campus students, offering them online tools that supplement and enrich their classroom and laboratory experiences. MIT also expects that MITx will eventually host a virtual community of millions of learners around the world.

In de lokale campuskrant staat een uitgebreid interview met de projectleider.

Het is een interessante ontwikkeling en ben heel benieuwd om met mijn OpenCourseWare-collega's van MIT hier meer over te horen. Het initiatief roept veel vragen op en niet alleen bij mij:

Persoonlijk vind ik dit een mooi initiatief en sluit ook aan bij wat wij op de TU Delft willen doen met OpenCourseWare en Online Education-programma.
