Online Learning: Exploring the Possible

Stanford University is aggressively exploring the varied ways in which online technology has the potential to enhance educational access and quality. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have captured wide public attention, but Stanford’s work in the online space is much broader. How can we help students learn more effectively?
