The school that pioneered online education is now welcoming its first director of digital learning. MIT President Rafael Reif announced Professor Sanjay Sarma would be filling the role, after spending over 15 years developing new instructional techniques for his mechanical engineering students. Sarma will be helping assess how models of online instruction—such as open-source technology platform edX and the accompanying MITx—can be integrated into MIT students’ on-campus education. The Institute’s OpenCourseWare office will be reporting to Sarma, as well, and will continue to work closely with MIT faculty.
