Six seed grants awarded Spring 2014

The Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning (VPOL) awarded six seed grants in Spring 2014 on topics ranging from medical training to indigenous culture to linear algebra. Two teams from the School of Medicine, School of Engineering, and the School of Humanities and Sciences each received funding. Three of the teams will be teaching blended classes (one of which will also be offered as a free, public online course or MOOC). The two engineering projects will generate innovative course software.
