Online Education: A Catalyst for Higher Education Reforms
The final report of Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Online Education Policy Initiative presents findings from discussions among the members of the Institute-wide initiative supported by advice from the advisory group. The report reflects comments and responses received from many sources, including education experts, government education officials, and representatives of university organizations.
The Online Education Policy Initiative’s discussions described in the report represents only the first step in a continuing dialogue. The initiative set out with the goals of presenting a cohesive report on challenges and opportunities across the interacting subfields of education research, engaging in the public discourse surrounding the practice of online education, and influencing policy and policymakers to create a welcoming environment for educational innovation. The authors invite the EducationXPress Community to provide feedback and reflect on the ideas laid out in this report in the comments section below.
