Interesting. Exciting . Able to change your habits ... The road to knowledge is becoming increasingly paved . We have lines of education ... Digital Tenologia brought about an explosion of new methods and new strategies in all spheres of intellectual activity . Progress Internet network facilitates the exchange of ideas , transmission of " how to do " and mentality . There are so many applications expert in learning, in research, in diagnostics that you need a course like this, that you clarify perceptions .

This was a remarkable opportunity to learn about the field of educational technology and get feedback on our projects. With an open mind and some quality time, the participants may contribute a great deal. The community TAs and the instructors have strong interest helping participants function in the MOOC, which is quite a wonderful challenge with evolving technology. As always, one gets what one gives, and many people gave a lot. I want to be ready for the next course with related content, and I am ready to keep going with my project. Very appreciative!

Good overall. Really enjoyed the videos and reading materials. I'm new to the subject and do not work in education, so I struggled a bit with the assignments. The forums were hit-and-miss, but there were some nice conversations.

Its a very informative course, I got an opportunity to learn a lot of things - what's new in the learning industry, how things have evolved, creative ways of engaging learners, assessments and a lot more. The speakers are leaders in their field and it was good to listen to their perspectives. The activities were interesting too. Thanks for putting-up a great course.

A concise and complete introduction to education theories and technology. Delivered in an easy to understand format with activities to reinforce understanding. This course is especially recommended for learners with no experience in education such as engineers and software developers. The instructors were amazing and the edx platform was very easy to use.

Well, I am taking this course for my LMS, PLE, about the content I have design tailored courses to companies and educational organism, so I decide about the content of my tailored courses. As an instructor, I have more than 29 years on teaching normal classroom, then online, then learn to administrate and design courses with Moodle in all it version. As a provider, I have been an independent consultant so I have to propose my courses including platform and because I can be flexible about courses and can change content when the course has already begun with, just to arrive at the learning goal for teachers and employees.

Exceptional class. Professor Eric Klopfer has established a warm and supportive class environment - no easy feat in a MOOC model. I am a school administrator and am very glad that I took this course - I learned a tremendous amount. Thank you, MIT.

Io vorrei lavorare ad un progetto di insegnamento/apprendimento della Lingua, della Cultura, della Storia Italiana per studenti stranieri. Ho una buonissima competenza e una esperienza di circa venti anni nell'insegnamento nella Scuola Secondaria di I grado, Statale. Conosco anche abbastanza bene la Lingua latina. Io spero di poter seguire questo corso sebbene esso venga trasmesso in lingua inglese. Io vorrei avere anche dei compagni di studio con i quali confrontarmi, anche via Skype. Grazie per la vostra attenzione best regards
