This is a watershed moment in higher education as colleges and universities explore the potential of online technology to enable new teaching methods and deliver educational content to global audiences. Princeton has emerged as a leader in this area through its development and delivery of free, non-credit course materials that have reached more than one million students through the Coursera, edX, NovoEd, and Kadenze platforms since the spring of 2012. Working in close collaboration with colleagues from the Faculty, the McGraw Center and the Office of Information Technology, we are coordinating this effort in ways that will help us to understand how online technology might be used to enhance the distinctive qualities of undergraduate education on the Princeton campus, while advancing our broader mission “in the nation’s service, and in the service of humanity”.
