MIT Omnichannel Education Lab

Pioneering innovation and practice in the new era of education

Why the MIT Omnichannel Education Lab?

Online learning is revolutionizing education on campus, in the workplace, and in the home, offering a multitude of learning options. The MIT Omnichannel Education Lab’s mission is to pioneer innovation and practice for the leaders of this new era of education and learning. We envision a world where educators deliver high-quality, high-impact omnichannel learning programs both online asynchronous and synchronous, and in-person to any individual in any location who wants to learn.

As a practitioner or a manager, what do you expect to learn about related to the field of SCM in the next five to ten years? Share  your thoughts here in our short survey to help us better understand what you expect from SCM education. Join us in creating better learning environments for the future.

The Challenge

In today’s ever-changing commercial environment, individuals must continuously update their knowledge and skills to keep pace with advances in technology and workplace management. Online and “blended” or “hybrid” learning programs provide more accessible and flexible ways to learn and acquire new abilities required in this changing landscape.

Our Response

In response, we are dedicated to helping educators design and deliver online (synchronous and asynchronous), in-person, and hybrid learning engagements for working professionals. Our goal is to enable these educators to offer programs that maximize professionals’ learning objectives, optimize their engagements, and advance their life-long career plans.

A data-driven framework to evaluate design changes in MOOCs

A data-driven framework to evaluate design changes in MOOCs

This research aims to develop a data-driven framework to evaluate design changes in MOOCs. We explore a change from multiple angles-process, proficiency, and perception- and apply various analytical methods-temporal, causal and predictive to map out the outcome of instruction along multiple dimensions of learning.
