Professor Ketterle collaborated with Professor Isaac Chuang to use the MITx platform to offer residential students interactive web-based problems. MITx allowed students to ask for advice when they got stuck on a problem. When they submitted the wrong answer, they received feedback immediately and could attempt the problem again.
