Ideas that Matter: Dr. Vijay Kumar brings up the rhetoric of crisis in education versus rhetoric of optimism, innovation, and opportunity. He goes on to focus on the optimism that open content, courseware, communities and data are bringing in the abundance they provide on the educational supply side. This is redefining what, where, and how people learn. Dr. Vijay Kumar provides leadership for planning and implementing technology-enabled educational innovations at MIT. In his prior roles at MIT as Assistant Provost and Director of Academic Computing, as well as other institutions, Kumar’s work focused on the effective integration of information technology in education. Kumar was the Principal Investigator of the Open Knowledge Initiative, the MIT-led collaborative project supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop an open architecture for enterprise educational applications.
