'MITx' will offer courses online and make online learning tools freely available.

 

MIT today announced the launch of an online learning initiative internally called “MITx.” 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.

 

GM: ===> This is nearly unbelievable and THAT Innovation in Education! <=== Congratulations MIT for this step to the future of Education!

Great to see all these training material (pdf) published by the MIT #open-source initiative. It's an important step in regard with the trainee (self-learning) and for the trainer (sharing the learning material). It's not collaborative for the moment, but it's an important first step :)
