Nici nu a trecut o luna de cand semnalam articolul din New York Times cu privire la „University of Wherever” si pasi importanti s-au realizat. MIT lanseaza ‘MITx’ platforma online gratuita care va oferi si cursuri online gratuite.
“Students worldwide are increasingly supplementing their classroom education with a variety of online tools,” Reif said. “Many members of the MIT faculty have been experimenting with integrating online tools into the campus education. We will facilitate those efforts, many of which will lead to novel learning technologies that offer the best possible online educational experience to non-residential learners. Both parts of this new initiative are extremely important to the future of high-quality, affordable, accessible education.”
