With advances in digital learning technologies, Faculty at MIT have an unprecedented opportunity to impact learning worldwide.
Over 3.7 million unique learners have enrolled in a MOOC and MITx has granted over 190,000 certificates. MIT OCW receives over 50,000 visits every day.
Develop and teach a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)
Create a MOOC on the edX platform and offer it to learners everywhere, for free. MITx courses give you global reach and the ability to impact thousands of learners. The MOOC you develop can be used later for residential teaching, or you can conduct both a MOOC and a classroom course simultaneously.
Publish a Course on OCW
Publish materials from an existing residential course on OCW under an open license. This is the least labor-intensive option and often reaches the broadest audience. OCW course materials are a solid foundation for exploring other digital learning projects. For instance, some faculty have reused video lectures from their OCW courses in later MITx efforts.
