If you are a member of the MIT faculty, Open Learning is your central resource for digital learning initiatives and online education. Open Learning is a community where faculty can collaborate and share digital learning experiences. We offer instructional and technical consultation and a wealth of tools and resources.

Why should you get involved with Open Learning?

MIT is at the forefront of an exciting movement in education, and our faculty are leading the way. As laid out by the Institute-Wide Task Force Report on the Future of MIT Education, and demonstrated by our foundational partnership with edX, digital learning is an Institute priority. Drawing together MIT’s decades of experience in teaching and learning, Open Learning can help you find your way in this new world by supporting you in initiatives, programs, or projects at MIT and beyond.

Digital learning can help improve residential teaching, open doors to new educational research ventures, and provide an avenue to share your work online with a worldwide audience. Open Learning can assist you in discovering the most appropriate pathway for getting started with digital learning, given your project goals, available time, and course content.
