Professor Anant Agarwal, director of CSAIL and head of MIT’s Open Learning Enterprise, is looking to not only democratize access to education, but also reinvent the very nature of how people learn.
“I want to disrupt how education is done,” Agarwal said in a new profile of his work on MIT News.
Agarwal is currently working on developing new online learning tools that he hopes will fundamentally change the way people learn. Through MITx, MIT’s new online learning initiative, and the first prototype course 6.002x Circuits and Electronics, Agarwal has been researching and developing new ways for people to learn online.
