Jessica Sandland

Dr. Sandland discusses how in 3.086, MITx is used to host online exercises to help students learn efficient online research practices. Students also use product development software which facilitates student-to-student interaction and provides repository for detailing their progress. In 3.032, the class is completely flipped, with lectures and problems online. Student response is overwhelmingly positive, citing flexibility of access to course materials as well as immediate feedback on online problems.
