A joint MIT and Harvard University report, one of the largest investigations of massive open online courses to date, provides new insights into MOOC behaviors: many teachers enroll, learner intentions matter, and cost boosts completion rates.
Kahoot! is a classroom response system which creates an engaging learning space, through a game-based digital pedagogy. Kahoot! is an easy-to-use blended learning platform which works on any device, making the classroom interactive, encouraging both educators and learners to ask great questions.
This fall, MIT Professor Shigeru Miyagawa flipped his classroom as he taught two versions of Visualizing Japan to two distinctive audiences at the same time. He co-taught the massive online open course (MOOC) VJx on edX, as well as the residential version of the course, 21F.027, to students at MIT. The students in the residential class were assigned the MOOC video lectures and quizzes to complement their classroom work.

The Open Science Framework (OSF) supports the entire research lifecycle: planning, execution, reporting, archiving, and discovery.
Scientists have identified the part of the brain that teachers use to detect when their pupils do not understand what they are being taught.
Researchers found that a brain region called the anterior cingulate cortex picks up how mistaken students are.
They say their findings provide significant insight into the brain processes that allow a teacher to understand a student's learning.
They also found that other regions of the frontal lobe play important roles.
