Following the launch of MIT’s online education course, students have praised the innovative approach at the head of a revolution in remote learning. The free MITx course offers students across the world the chance to access courses through the US university’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). The first course is called “Circuits and Electronics”, also referred to as 6.002x, and received a wave of popularity upon its launch in March. Registrations for the course soared after the announcement with 120,000 signing up. The course runs until 8 June, but MIT has started providing feedback from some of its enrolled students. As can be seen here the course has been very well received, and it offers a glance at the potential future of further education, or indeed at any level.
