Impact of Online Education on Campus Education

Willem van Valkenburg

In September 2013 the first TU Delft MOOC started. Five years later Willem van Valkenburg will reflect on the impact of MOOCs: more open education, blended learning becoming the standard in campus education, TU Delft recognized by MIT as one of the front-runners in online education, launch of TU Delft Teaching Lab, and more.

Willem van Valkenburg is manager of the department of Teaching & Learning Services. This group supports lecturers in developing and innovating education at the Delft University of Technology. He is also a member of the leadership of the TU Delft Extension School and Vice-President of the Open Education Consortium.
