As you know there has been a great deal of new activity with online learning this year at Stanford. Many of our conversations to date have focused on teaching and course production questions and insights. In our next discussion we turn the focus to the research opportunities made possible by massive new data generated in online and blended learning platforms. To that end The Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning (VPOL) and the Graduate School of Education (GSE) will co-host an informal lunchtime forum where you can hear from a panel of colleagues (Dan Boneh, Keith Devlin, Scott Klemmer) who are engaged in research on their online and blended classes. Each will speak briefly about their experiences and then we'll open it for discussion.
