Are Courses Outdated? MIT Considers Offering ‘Modules’ Instead – Wired Campus – Blogs – The Chronicle of Higher Education

06 Aug

That question is a major theme of a 213-page report released on Monday by a committee at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology exploring how the 153-year-old engineering powerhouse should innovate to adapt to new technologies and new student expectations.
