The Best of Both Worlds? Transforming OpenCourseWare in the age of interactivity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The strength of OCW has been the widespread sharing of course materials from traditional academic courses at their host institutions. But as the host universities transform their teaching to support blended and "flipped" models, how can OCW transform to support these newer models of teaching and learning?

From it's beginnings, one of the stated goals of MITx has been to enhance campus education at MIT. Since its inception dozens of courses have used the edX platform at MIT for blended learning. The time has come to open campus-based online learning. However, adapting an MITx course -- particularly the MOOC-style interactive assessments -- to OCW presents technical, usability and pedagogical challenges. In this presentation, we will discuss how we addressed these issues for the course 18.05x Introduction to Probability and Statistics.
