  • Producer is a flagship application in MIT’s educational content management strategy.

    It will provide for authoring, search and re-use of MITx & MITr content and courses as well as export to edX & OCW formats for course delivery.

    Producer includes plug-in architecture for service integration and export schemas (e.g., IMS Common Cartridge—used by Canvas, etc).
  • Embedded Assessment provides faculty and course developers the ability to embed formative assessment in any web accessible content.

    We believe that by making it easy to embed assessment directly in content anywhere and everywhere, we have the potential to dramatically increase learning effectiveness.
  • The Video Concept Browser allows learners and faculty to navigate course video by concept or learning outcome.

    It uses traditional lecture video and provides tools to enable faculty to assign concepts/learning outcomes to specific timepoints.

    • 13. Unless otherwise specified this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. Discussion Questions • How are you reusing course content? – Between MOOCs – From existing sources, LMS/VLE, OER, etc. – What tools are you using? • Are you tracking data about asset effectiveness? – E.g., Did learners have difficulties answering a particular question correctly? Did learners skip materials? Etc. • Does your course include learning outcomes and transparently link outcomes with content and assessments? 13
