  • Do  MIT  students  like  MITx  sites?    
  • Do  MIT  students  like  MITx  sites?    
  • 7.28  (upper-­‐level  Molecular  Biology)   If  you  tried  answering  a  problem  on  the  7.28/7.58  MITx  course  site,   did  you  find  the  problems  useful  as  a  learning  tool  or  study  aid?    
  • Early  Challenges  to  Using  Flipped  Classes  in  7.014   Introduc?on  to  Biology  at  MIT   Before  going  to  class,  I  watch  the  lecture  video  clips  assigned   for  that  day  (when  assigned).
