About the Summit

What does the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) phenomenon mean for Illinois? Higher education today is experiencing some potential disruption due to the growth of high quality, free online courses. The University's recent partnership with Coursera, faculty's interest in designing MOOCs, the campus mission to continue to enhance access, and the general question of what constitutes high-quality teaching and learning prompted the theme of this year's Summit on Online Education.

We're honored to feature Dr. Daphne Koller, co-CEO and co-founder of Coursera as our guest speaker. Dr. Koller is the Rajeev Motwani Professor, Computer Science Department at Stanford University, and the Oswald Villard University Fellow in Undergraduate Education.
