The MIT Online Education Policy Initiative


The MIT Online Education Policy Initiative studies the impacts of online learning on the higher education community from a policy perspective. Objectives

  • To explore teaching pedagogy and efficacy, institutional business models, and global educational engagement strategies and to present a cohesive report on these issues that can be used by policymakers and leaders in education;
  • To engage in the public discourse surrounding online learning and to encourage productive discussion;
  • To influence policy and policymakers to create a welcoming environment for educational innovation.

If policymakers and educational leaders can understand and anticipate those impacts, they can create a welcoming environment for educational innovation – an environment in which the use of online learning to improve the quality of education, strengthen colleges and universities, and improve access to higher educational resources for all who want to learn will flourish.
