  • MIT celebrated its 150th birthday in 2011 – it’s also when we announced MITxIt’s a great time to be at MIT – there’s lots going on with education technologyIt’s more than MOOCs We’ve already heard some of the cool MIT educational technology projects as part of LINC 2013: BLOSSOMS, othersI’ll describe a few more!
  • Divide the course into: Trunk = 3-D Continuum Mechanics and Linear Elasticity and Branches = Original concept that students could take the branches in any orderDescribes the modularity of the course
  • Powerfully simple idea
