MIT’s Office of Educational Innovation and Technology is ready to support faculty who wish to experiment with online offerings of their courses on-campus. OEIT will also provide advice to faculty members on how to create subject content and assemble it for online delivery. Faculty members are encouraged to contact OEIT at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
