What They're Saying About Us
“This is a really interesting project and I eagerly look forward to the results, which I expect will be positive. We are exploring new territory with online learning, and experiments such as [CCC]’s will provide vital data points as the community figures out what the next steps should be.”
“I am intrigued by the plan to add a fourth credit hour to your courses … it makes obvious sense. That extra credit hour makes the digital engagement an essential and meaningful part of the course. I think it is very likely your experiment will be successful and look forward to see[ing] the results. You’ve neatly avoided the trap of award badges for in class work students [are] already doing.”
Dr. Sanjay Sarma, Director of Digital Learning at MIT
