In his announcement of the new directorate for digital learning, President Reif mentioned that,  “through MITx and edX, we should also use our campus community as a laboratory for inventing the residential research university of the future.”

The establishment of the DDL follows a series of experiments that MITCET launched with a focus on modularity to address the improvement of the undergrad educational experience as well as the launch of  MITx and edX courses. (See attached document),

With the above as context, the agenda for our next MITCET is as follows:

1.  Continued discussion of the Vision/Mission for Digital Learning  (Sanjay)

2.   Key Issues/Priorities for Digital Learning  (All)

-   What are the 3 most important things that MIT should focus on in its Digital Learning initiatives?

3. Updates
